Chicken Teriyaki

Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Instant)

Broccoli w/ Cheese

Two crock-pot meals in two days. I love the idea of something simmering slowly all day when it’s cold and snowy outside. It makes the house feel so cozy, and it smells really good too.

This Chicken Teriyaki recipe is easy and tasty. It would have been better to serve it with rice, but I realized too late that I forgot to buy some.

I’m not usually a fan of instant mashed potatoes. My Irish roots don’t allow it. But these Garlic Mashed from Betty Crocker are yummy, and much faster than all that peeling and boiling to make your own.

I love broccoli, but my husband won’t eat it unless it’s been unrecognizably disguised in some way. Velveeta does the job pretty well.

Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

Cut-up Fryer Chicken (Up to 4 lbs.)

2 TBS of Vegetable Oil

1/3 Cup of Soy Sauce

2 TBS of Brown Sugar

2 TBS of Water

1 Garlic Clove, minced

1 tsp Ground Ginger

In a skillet over medium heat brown chicken in oil on both sides. Transfer to crock-pot. In a separate bowl combine soy sauce, brown sugar, water, garlic and ginger. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high one hour. Reduce heat and cook another 4 to 5 hours. Remove to platter, spoon juices over chicken. Juice can also be thickened as a gravy and served over rice.

For just the three of us, I used two split chicken breasts. Pressed for time in the morning, I skipped the browning, and just put the chicken right in the crock-pot. It didn’t seem to affect the taste. When the chicken finished cooking there was a lot of juice in the pot. Since I forgot the rice, I pulled the chicken off the bone and put it back in the pot for a few minutes to soak up all the juice. It was moist, sweet and yummy. My 3 year old even ate it.

    Yum! What a wonderful-sounding dinner. That’s one of the easiest-sounding teriyaki recipes I’ve read. I hate using a lot of ingredients.

    Thanks for this easy and delicious recipe! I have a couple of young, picky eaters at my house and even they loved it! I’m definitely adding this one into our family meal cycle.
