Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Because we all still need to eat real meals leading up to Christmas and not everyone can survive on Christmas cookies; so this! Teriyaki chicken is a quick and easy dinner and tastes better than takeout. It’s seriously addictive with that honey orange glaze. Not too sweet and not too salty, but just right.

The chicken thighs are tender and delicious. If you’re like me and love super clean meat, chicken thighs can be a little annoying to trim but it’s so worth it. You can’t beat the juiciness and flavor of thigh meat.

This crockpot teriyaki chicken recipe requires no pre-cooking, meaning you can dump all the ingredients in the slow cooker and press the button. Serve over rice for an easy weeknight dinner or meal prep lunch.
