Island Soyaki Chicken

Cook’s notes: This is simply a variation on the Slow Cooker Chicken with Pineapple, but made even easier with the use of bottled teriyaki sauce and other products from Trader Joe’s.

15 oz can pineapple chunks in juice
3/4 cup bottled teriyaki sauce, such as Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki sauce
1.5 lb package boneless, skinless chicken breasts
ginger powder

Drain the pineapple chunks, saving the juice in a glass measuring cup (I got about 3/4 cup). Add the teriyaki sauce to the pineapple juice and stir to combine.

Coat the slow cooker crock with vegetable cooking spray. Layer the chicken and pineapple pieces in the slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken liberally with ginger powder. Pour sauce over chicken.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours or on HIGH for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Serve with hot rice and a tossed salad.
