 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         boned and skinned chicken breast halves -- cut up
    4      medium        carrots -- cut 1 inch pieces
      1/2  cup           chicken  broth
    2      tablespoons   gingerroot -- finely chopped
                         (or 2 teaspoons ground ginger)
    1      tablespoon    packed brown sugar
    2      tablespoons   soy sauce
      1/2  teaspoon      ground allspice
      1/2  teaspoon      red pepper sauce
    1      tablespoon    cornstarch
    1      8 1/4 oz can  pineapple chunks in juice, drained, -- reserve juice
    1      medium        red bell pepper (1 cup) -- cut 1 inch pieces
                         Hot cooked rice -- optional
 
 Mix chicken, carrots, broth, gingerroot, brown sugar, soy sauce, allspice and
 pepper sauce in a crockpot.  Cover and cook on low heat setting for 7 to 8
 hours or until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink in the
 center.  Mix cornstarch and reserved pineapple juice; gradually stir into
 chicken mixture.  Stir in pineapple and bell pepper.  Cover and cook on high
 heat setting for about 15 minutes (I put in the green pepper about 45 minutes
 before the stew is done.) or until slightly thickened and bubbly.  Serve with
 rice.
