I tried a second recipe from the Gluten-Free Slow Cooker cookbook last night, and while it definitely had promise, I believe my user error resulted in a less than stellar dish.
I happen to only own a 6-quart slow cooker, and the recipe called for using a 4-quart model. Carrie did address the issues involved in using the wrong size cooker in her introduction, but unfortunately I didn’t reduce the cooking time quite enough and the chicken ended up overcooked. The flavors were good, though! I really liked the combo of peppers and pineapple.
I started off adding boneless skinless chicken breasts to the cooker and topping them with sliced canned pineapple.
Next, I added the sliced peppers and seasoning, and poured some reserved pineapple juice over top of everything.
I cooked everything on low for 4 hours, but think I should have probably reduced it to 3 hours – not only do I have a larger slow cooker, I was also using fairly thin chicken breasts, and they got a bit dry.
I absolutely loved the pineapple, though! I’m eager to try her slow-cooked pineapple recipe soon.
