Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

Asian-style meals are one of our favorites, but we don't get to go out and eat it very often. Even though that's very sad, I've been able to hold us over between date nights by making easier and less-expensive Asian-style meals at home. It might be a bit more work than ordering take-out, but it's definitely worth it!

5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe

This slow cooker teriyaki chicken couldn't be simpler to throw together. Just toss it in the slow cooker in the morning, and you've got minimal work at dinnertime! My family loved it. Even my picky four year old approved!!

Ingredients:
3-4 chicken breasts
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons corn starch

Directions:
  1. Add chicken to slow cooker.
  2. In a bowl, mix together chicken broth,teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder until combined.
  3. Pour teriyaki mixture over the chicken.
  4. Cook on Low 6-8 hours, or on High for 3-4 hours.
  5. When chicken is cooked through, cut into pieces or shred. Add corn starch to teriyaki sauce and mix in slow cooker to thicken sauce. Serve chicken and sauce over rice.

Tips:
*If teriyaki sauce does not completely cover chicken in slow cooker, turn chicken halfway through cook time or cut into pieces so the chicken will not dry out and will absorb more of the flavor.
*Chicken can be placed in slow cooker thawed OR frozen. Cook time should be about the same.
*For even more flavor, marinate chicken in teriyaki sauce in a Ziploc bag for a few hours or overnight.

  1. Looks great, I'm so making this tomorrow! I've heard you can put cooked chicken breasts in your kitchenaid it will shred them perfectly without getting your hands dirty. Have you ever added veggies while cooking?
