Wowie Maui Chicken - Slow Cooker FAIL

I thought I would try to be really on the ball and have supper ready on time tonight. It has been a while since we had Wowie Maui Chicken, a recipe from the Looneyspoons cookbook, so I thought I'd give it a whirl in the slow cooker. Basically, it's chicken and rice with pineapple and peppers in a sweet and sour sauce. Usually it goes over well with the kids, who are pineapple junkies, and Matt and I usually dig it too. I got everything in the crockpot before noon and had it simmering away all afternoon. 5:30 rolls around and I serve up supper, only to find that the rice is still crunchy and the sauce is still very much liquid-y and not very saucy at all. It was completely inedible. I tried throwing it into a pot on the stove to see if the rice would soften up. Instead, the rice just glued to the bottom of the pot and burned on.

\So, what did we eat for supper??

Apple pie and ice cream.

Good thing I made dessert.

    1. I have no idea. The planets weren't quite aligned tonight. At least the pie didn't burn! :)

  2. I gotta get you the slow cooker recipe for Aloha Porkchops. Love them.

    1. Yum! We actually had slow cooker pork chops on Tuesday. I'd love the recipe.

    2. Where's that recipe, Steve? lol
