Directions

  1. Place the cornstarch, salt and pepper in a shallow dish, such as a pie plate. Stir with a spoon or fork. Drench the chicken pieces in the mixture. Shake off any excess and place the chicken pieces on plate. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet, over medium to high heat. Brown the chicken pieces. Use a pair of tongs to turn the chicken. Cook in batches, so you don't overcrowd the pan. As it browns, remove the chicken and place on a plate.
  3. While the chicken cooks, combine the honey, soy sauce, pineapple juice, orange juice, vinegar, and garlic in a measuring cup. Whisk together and pour into the crockpot. Add the cayenne pepper and ground ginger. Season to taste with ground pepper.
  4. Add the chicken and juices to the crockpot and cook on low for 3-4 hours. The sauce will thicken as it cooks. Serve with your choice of cooked rice and broccoli. Top with green onions for a garnish.
