Teriyaki is just one of those flavors that is always a hit with the family, plus it’s simple to make. Today, I am taking that teriyaki flavor to the slow cooker teriyaki chicken thighs. Chicken thighs work especially good in the slow cooker because that dark meat stays tender.
You place the chicken in your slow cooker. Then, it gets covered with a mixture of sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and pepper. It all cooks on low for 4-5 hours. After that, you remove the chicken to a place and cover with foil.
Now, you add all of the juices from the crock pot into a sauce pan. You will add in some cornstarch mixed with water and cook until thick. To serve, I cut the chicken into slice and place on a bed of rice. Then drizzle with the thickened sauce.
Serve the chicken over rice and you could even add in some steamed vegetables too. So easy to make and a family favorite.
