Sweet Tropical Chicken

I never thought in the month of January, I'd be able to pull this meal off as affordable, easy, and simple as this!

2 to 2 1/2 lbs. lbs. bone in chicken breast $2.25 ($.99 lb.)
1 large mango, chunked $.50 (2/$1)
1/4 of a large pineapple, chunked $.38 ($1.49 each)
1/4 C. brown sugar $.12
2 T. minced gingerroot $.23 ($1.68 lb.)
1 small yellow onion, chopped fine $.12 ($.25/lb.)
1 tsp. cumin $.05
1 tsp. smoked paprika $.08
salt and pepper $.05
1/2 large red bell pepper, julienned $.15 ($.79 lb.)
1 T. parsley $.05
2 C. cooked rice $.29 (6 lbs. for $2.99)

In a crockpot, add brown sugar, fruit, veggies, and spices - stir well to combine. Add chicken and spoon mixture over chicken to coat well. Cook over low for 6 hours, chicken is done when it pulls away from the bone.

Serve over rice.

Yields = 4-6 servings

Cost = $4.27 or $.72 - $1.07 per serving
