I tend to reach for rice but feel free to pick and choose how you serve. Or if you want pick something totally different from the list above. 

How to Make

Step 1: In a bowl you will mix up all the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce. Get it nice and mixed.  Now add in your raw chicken.

Step 2: Than pour the chicken and sauce in to your crockpot. Place lid on and cook as directed. 

Step 3: When the chicken is done remove it and then set aside. You can use the sauce to make a homemade thick glaze. 

Just mix with cornstarch and cold water and mix into the hot liquid. Stir until it is thickened to your desire.

Can I Replace Brown Sugar in Recipe

You can use honey to replace the brown sugar in the recipe if you would like. I have not tried to make this with any artificial sweeteners so I can’t say if swapping that way would work or not. 

How to Know When Chicken Is Done

There are a few signs to look for when it comes to knowing when Chicken is done. The first is to look at the juices in the chicken. 

The chicken juice needs to run clear. Next you can cut into it and see that there is no more pink. 

But the best way to know is reach for a meat thermometer. Probe the chicken in the thickest part and check the temp. 

The internal temperature of chicken needs to reach 165 degrees for it to fully be cooked. If you are cooking with bone in chicken make sure to not touch the bone. It will give a false reading. 

Can You Freeze Teriyaki Chicken

Are you looking to meal prep? You could easily freeze your leftovers. I haven’t froze this fish but I don’t see any problems in why it shouldn’t work.

Place chicken in proper freezer container and store in the fridge 2-3 months. 

When ready to eat thaw in the fridge overnight. Or do a quick reheat from frozen in the microwave.

If you choose to just store this crockpot chicken in the fridge it will store for up to three days in the refrigerator. Just always use your best judgment in terms of quality.
