Heaven Under a Palm Tree Chicken is a tasty slow cooker Chinese copycat recipe made with simple ingredients, such as soy sauce, garlic, bell peppers, and pineapple. Sweet and savory come together in perfect harmony for this Asian-style delight. Pineapple makes everything better, and this slow cooker chicken recipe is no exception! This recipe incorporates both pineapple chunks and their juice, adding a sweet and tart kick to the otherwise savory sauce. After letting the chicken cook all day in your slow cooker, garnish it with sliced almonds. You'll swear this dish came out of your local Chinese restaurant.

I'm not sure if this naming contest is still going on or not, but I might call it "Hot Chicks on the Beach!" I have been perusing some of other people's comments on this one, and it seems that many of them are in regard to the rice being too overcooked and mushy. I might either add the rice halfway through the cooking to alleviate this, or even use cooked rice that you add in toward the end. Hope this helps!

Not the Slow Cooker "Hang On Soupy" Chicken recipe as listed but a repeat of Heaven Under A Palm Tree Chicken recipe. Please correct this. This is the second recipe that does this.

I wish I'd read the review about the cooking time before doing this. After five hours, the rice was complete mush, there was no flavor, and I was left with a meal that was completely unsalvageable. Very disappointed, since it sounded so good. I may try this again, only doing it in the oven next time. Rice in the slow cooker is just to unpredictable when you can't be at home to constantly watch the cooking process.

Followed recipe exactly. Cooked 8 hours on low. Rice disintegrated, and there was not much flavor at all. Nobody liked it, will not make it again.
