Sweet and Sour Chicken

On the last night of camp, we had this for dinner with rice.  I’ll try to record the recipe here but mostly I just kind of felt and tasted my way through this one.  The original recipe came from Bob’s Aunt Nancy (I think!).

chicken breasts or thighs (for dinner at camp I used 2 of those big bags of chicken thighs from Costco)

1 box brown sugar

1 cup soy sauce

2 cups pineapple juice or 1 large can pineapple rings (or crushed or chunk) with juice

You can combine all these in a crock pot and cook it all day until the chicken is tender.  For camp, I divided the chicken up between gallon ziploc freezer bags (about 5) and added the brown sugar, soy sauce and pineapple juice in almost equal parts (be carefull with the soy sauce, a little goes a long way) and then froze it and as it thawed in the coolers up at camp, it marinated and then I just boiled it, adding additional pineapple juice as needed.  It was really good.
