1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 (17 oz.) can chunky mixed fruit or fruit cocktail, drained

One hour before serving, remove all but approximately 1/2 cup of accumulated broth with a baster (leave enough to cover crock bottom). Have fruit and sauce at room temperature. Pour drained fruit over chicken, pour sweet and sour sauce over all. Cook 1 more hour. Serve over a bed of rice.
