1. Simple 5 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki

Put simply, crockpots make cooking easier. This method of cooking is invitingly hands-off, and the results are mouthwatering. Just throw your chicken in with teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and broth, then let the mixture stew for about six hours, depending on the level of heat you opt to use. When you return to the crockpot, you’ll be greeted with a piping hot meal, slow-cooked to perfection. This dish from Holidays Page takes about 6 hours to slow-cook and yields 4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound chicken (sliced or cubed)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup teriyaki or soy sauce (with or without sesame seeds)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 3 minced garlic cloves

Directions: Place chicken in bottom of crock pot. In separate bowl whisk together remaining 4 ingredients then pour onto chicken in crock pot. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low 6 to 8 hours. If sauce is runny, mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water and pour it into sauce to thicken.
