  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • Combine bell pepper, onion, and pineapple in the basin of a slow cooker. Place chicken breasts on top.
    In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
    Remove chicken to a cutting board and cube. Remove 1 cup of hot liquid from the slow cooker to a small bowl. Whisk in the cornstarch until no lumps remain.
