Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken

Quick and easy crockpot teriyaki chicken. Skinless boneless chicken breasts tossed together with all ingredients and slowly cooked in a crockpot.


What a great weekend it’s been. Did you all have a great Labor day weekend? It was my nephew’s 3rd birthday and it was wonderful. The only sad thing about these weekends is that they have to end.

I also made this crockpot teriyaki chicken this weekend which was a great success. I just love teriyaki chicken and I wanted to try it in the slow cooker. As usual, anytime you make chicken in a slow cooker, it turns out so tender, the chicken literally melts in your mouth. I served the chicken over some jasmine rice, poured some extra teriyaki sauce over the chicken, sprinkled it with sesame seeds and garnished with some green onions. It’s fabulous, simple and delicious.

    Hi, just wondering about a more exact cooking time? 4-6 hours is quite a window! If I am using thawed chicken, what would the cooking time be specifically? Thanks!

    My family loves this recipe….however, could you package and freeze? I’m taking the crockpot on vacation and this would be excellent to already have it prepackaged and dumped while we are on the beach!

    We had this tonight and everyone devoured it! Is it possible to double the recipe and if so, would the cooking time change?

      You could certainly double the recipe, but I don’t think I’d change the cooking time, you could always try it after 6 hours to see if it’s cooked, but it should be fine.
