Gluten Free Hawaiian Chicken

Sorry it has been a while!  We went on a quick get a way for Spring Break, and now I am in the process of moving in the next couple weeks.  Life is a little chaotic around here.  Nevertheless, we still need to eat!  This is a staple at our house.  I usually cook a bunch of chicken breasts in the crockpot, then bag and freeze them to use in meals like this one.  You could use a rotisserie chicken or whatever works for you!

Hawaiian Chicken
6 T. gf soy sauce
¾ c. brown sugar(feel free to use less, it is pretty sweet)
2 T. honey
2 ¼ c. water
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 in. piece of fresh ginger
1 red pepper, cut into slices(I often use 2)
1 can pineapple tidbits, drained
2-3 cups cooked chicken, in large chunks
1 T. potato/corn starch
1 T. cold water
Combine first 6 ingredients and bring to a boil in a large pan.  Add chicken and reduce to simmer.  Simmer 20 min.  Add red pepper and pineapple and simmer 10 min.  In a small bowl combine remaining starch and water.  Stir and add to mixture.  Boil for 1-2 min. until slightly thickened.  Remove piece of ginger and serve over rice.
