Crockpot Sweet&Sour Chicken

This one is becoming a fast favorite around here with the guys. I love any dish that can be made in the crockpot. For one thing it is a great time saver for any busy mom, and secondly, I LOVE the smell of food cooking all day, it makes the whole house smell good and gives it a homey feel.

3 Tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can pineapple chunks, undrained
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Place chicken in crockpot. Combine all ingredients except pineapple and cornstarch. Cover and cook on low 5-7 hours. Drain pineapple, add chunks to crockpot. Stir in the cornstarch into the pineapple juice, then pour into crockpot and cook on low for another 15-20 minutes until slightly thickened. This sauce is great served on rice along side the chicken!
