Crock-Pot Teriyaki Chicken
So my friend told me that she makes this amazing teriyaki chicken in her crock-pot and the recipe she gave me was simple enough that I thought I would give it a try. The original recipe just called for 4 chicken breasts and 1 to 1 1/2 cups of bottled teriyaki sauce, cook till done and serve over rice. Sounded easy, yet I admit sort of bland. So I decided to take the recipe and play with it a little.
I added in some extra seasonings like ginger and garlic, a little brown sugar, pineapple and mixed in some steamed stir fry veggies before serving, and the results? Meh…not my favorite and definitely not something I would call “amazing”.
For me, it was a little too salty, and the chicken was dry. The kids however liked it well enough. I think this one might be worth trying one more time, maybe adjusting the amount of teriyaki sauce, or the type used (I used Kikkoman brand), and I think using chicken thighs might make for a moister meat. Here is the recipe I used, let me know if you try it and what you think, or if you fiddle with it some to make it tastier.
