Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken


Slower Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

I have been struggling to find meals that all of us will enjoy recently, and that can withstand E eating at 6pm, Mr B and I at 8pm and J at 8.30pm.   It is either that or doing three dinners and my sanity can’t cope with that idea.   So our Sage Appliances slow cooker has been an absolute god send as it has a keep warm function on it that means I can serve the same thing up three times, and each one is hot and edible.   Let’s face it the last adjective there being a rare occurrence in this house.

Yesterday I made a teriyaki chicken which couldn’t be more simple, and it vanished in less than five minutes.   There is no greater endorsement in this house.   Though J did smother it in cheese, but we will gloss over that.

  • This looks absolutely delicious and I reckon my lot would love it. Such a shame my slow cooker broke – I may have to treat myself once all the other house stuff is paid for since moving!

  • I love getting recipes from you Tanya
    I do not believe you can’t cook
    I used to !

    This looks delicious

  • I’m on a bit of chicken and rice kick at the moment (but don’t want it to be boring and just steamed with no flavor) this sounds amazing and I’m definitely adding it to my recipe book!

  • Ooh might try this with Quorn my dear, keep meaning to dust off the slow cooker too! Love that J smothered in cheese – sounds a little unusual, even to a veggie…

  • Oh my goodness – I LOVE YOU! I have the exact same slow cooker and teriyaki chicken is my OH’s FAVOURITE dish! You have NO idea how many Partner Points you just earned me! *does a little dance

  • Like Penny, I’m thinking Quorn would work really well, and the flavours sound lovely (never had it before!) I will be giving this a go!

  • This looks delicious and something different to cook in the slow cooker – I’m getting a bit boring with mine lately so I need all the inspiration I can get right now x x

  • I nearly always end up doing at least two dinner settings, at least in the week when OH gets home later than the kids want feeding. I really should invest in a slow cooker to save me the effort! Sound like a delicious recipe!
