Hawaiian Chicken

This is really, really good! It's spicy and sweet and the chicken turned out SO moist and tender. Definitely a keeper! This was another one from our freezer meal exchange that I will definitely be repeating!
6 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2- 16 oz cans pineapple slices, drained
2- 15 oz cans mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground red pepper

Place chicken in freezer bag. Mix together fruit, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, salt, ginger, and ground red pepper. Pour over the chicken in bag.

Serving Day: Thaw chicken mixture. Place in Crock Pot, cover, and cook on low for
 4-5 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. Add green pepper chunks to Crock Pot one hour before serving, if desired. To serve, spoon over steamed rice.
