This Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki recipe is fabulous because you can make it in your Crock Pot. Chicken Teriyaki is one of my boys favorite meals so finding an easy slow cooker version was a must for us. This sauce is also naturally sweetened with honey so it makes the recipe even better.
This makes a great meal summer or winter so it’s going on our menu rotation as a regular meal.

We love chicken teriyaki over white rice. It’s a delicious meal!
This is one of those recipes that the entire family agrees is delicious and looks forward to. It makes meal making so easy and pleasant when I know I’m making something they love! There’s nothing worse than making a meal that I will have to battle the boys to eat, which doesn’t happen as much since they are older but still does on occasion.
