Make It

1. In a large bowl, mix together ginger, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin, apricot preserves, chile paste and vinegar.

2. Place flour in a resealable plastic bag; add chicken pieces, a few at a time, shaking to coat. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown chicken wings in two batches, about 2 minutes per side (add additional oil, if necessary). Transfer wings to bowl with sauce and toss to coat.

3. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice. In a 4-quart slow cooker, stir together pineapple chunks, reserved juice, and vegetables; top with chicken wing mixture. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours. Stir before serving. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve over cooked rice.
