I added capsicum for the last 45 minutes mostly just to give it some colour, a definite winner !

β€œ I always double the sauce as my kids love it and it works just fine – less the sugar”

Could I ask… Is it possible to do on low? We are going to be out all afternoon so would like it to take about 5 hours to cook or longer. What do you think?

Made this for the first time earlier in the week and I loved it πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ I used 1.5kg of diced chicken breast so I doubled the sauce ingredients, added an extra can of pineapple and juices and some cracked black pepper. This was delicious served with the fried rice 2 recipe also available on this site πŸ˜‹πŸ˜πŸ˜Š Will definitely make again πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us Valerie Duke 😁
