Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

Today’s slow cooker recipe is a simple crock pot teriyaki chicken. You make it using chicken thighs. Chicken thighs tend to work better in the slow cooker and have more flavor. However, if you really oppose chicken thighs you can always use breasts.

This is made by placing your chicken in the slow cooker. In a bowl, you then whisk together some sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, and pepper together. Pour it over the chicken and cook on low for 4-5 hours until the chicken is fully cooked.

At this point you want to skim off any fat from the cooking liquid. then place the cooking liquid in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. You are gonna mix some cornstarch with a little water to mix in the boiling liquid to thicken and make a sauce.

I served mine over rice and with some steamed vegetables like a rice bowl. Top with the chicken and sauce. You’ll love how easy this crock pot teriyaki chicken is.

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

  2. 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 =)

  3. 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.
