Hi Sandra! I found your blog through a Year of Crockpotting. Before school starts, I wanted to try and find some yummy new crockpot recipes for the busy days ahead!

I would love to try this recipe for Sweet & Sour Chicken! My hubby is Chinese, so I'm trying to find some Asian inspired recipes to add to our menu. I wanted to double check on what type of chicken you used? I couldn't figure it out from the recipe. Did you use boneless skinless chicken breasts or a whole chicken? How much? Thanks!!!

Just wondering...Why does the picture appear to show red bell pepper and pineapple and the recipe does not call for it?
