Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

Today’s slow cooker recipe is a simple teriyaki chicken. It is made using chicken thighs. Chicken thighs tend to work better in the slow cooker and have more flavor. If you really are opposed to thighs you can always use breasts. I served mine over rice and with some steamed vegetables like a rice bowl.

  • Hello, great website. Just an FYI – Teriyaki anything isn’t Chinese. Supposedly Japanese, but not really even Japanese.

  • This is a great opportunity, for us all. Lets do tbis…

  • This recipe looks great! I didn’t know if you are aware, in your feedly news feed, the pictures shows up as an ad for adtech. It has been since you switched your website. I thought I’d share =)

  • I have made this before, and it is really easy to make and so good that even my picky-eater son eats it (even the leftovers) with gusto!

    My recommendation is to use low-sodium soy sauce.
