Sometimes I want take-out without the expense, the pick-up drive or delivery wait. Sometimes chinese food at home sounds like a good idea. So, I came up with this slow cooker version of chicken teriyaki. We got two plus tasty meals out of this for less than the cost of one chinese order. This is my first Messily Ever After original recipe - please let me know what you think!

1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
20 oz. can pineapple chunks, in juice

1 tsp soy sauce, low-sodium
1/4 tsp ground ginger
Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker and cover with vegetables. Add pineapple and juice. Pour remaining ingredients over the top. Cover and cook on LOW 6-6 hours or HIGH 4-6 hours. Serve over hot rice.
