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.

This week’s theme for #SundaySupper is coming at just the perfect time.  Five Ingredients or Less? Gotta love that.  Our host this week is TR from Gluten-Free Crumbly.
