Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki

We really like rice - it's so simple and easy - especially since we got our Lekue Rice Cooker. What goes good with rice? Chicken Teriyaki! I have bought bottled teriyaki before but decided to make my own this time. The ingredients are pretty basic! 

I had everything in my cupboard already - which is a nice surprise! While I was making my teriyaki - I let the chicken defrost.
  
I always use the crock pot liners - they are such time savers! This recipe is great - you just plop your chicken in (I used boneless skinless thighs) and then pour the sauce on top.

Then, when you come home from work, remove the chicken, and pour the excess sauce into a pan. (Start the rice now too.) Bring it to a boil and add a bit of thickener and heat through.

 While that is heating up - shred your chicken. 

Then mix the chicken into the sauce and you're ready to go! 

And there you have it - Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki. It was really easy and good too! Much better than the bottled stuff - especially knowing how easy it was to make! I hope you enjoy
