This slow cooker Five Ingredient Teriyaki Chicken is cooked to perfection.
My gosh I have been so short on time lately. Don’t you all hate when work consumes so much of your time? I tell you a slow cooker can be your best friend when you just don’t have the time to fiddle with dinner. But, folks, even better than a slow cooker recipe is one with only five ingredients.
If you are like me, and you made homemade teriyaki sauce, by all means, use it, if not, store-bought works quite well.
Just between you and me, I am not a fan of shredded chicken. That’s why this recipe is a real keeper. Take the few extra minutes to cut into bite sized pieces. It just tastes better to me. A teriyaki glaze has such incredible flavor. Lucky for me it just so happens to be the hubby’s favorite sauce.
Next time you want a gourmet-style dish without all of the fuss, pull out your slow cooker and whip up this delicious teriyaki chicken dish. I will warn you up front. Double the recipe. It’s that good. The best thing is you let the slow cooker do all the work. Carry on with business as usual.
