Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

This is a great, super easy, crock pot meal for any day of the week. We all really enjoyed the way this dish came out; it has a very nice teriyaki flavor to it - not too strong, not too salty, not too weak. The flavors are delicious, and the sauce has a nice sticky consistency to compliment the super tender chicken and rice.
 
We like to cook our brown rice with some chicken bouillon for extra flavor!
 
We served this with some steamed broccoli for a complete and satisfying meal.
 


Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki from Easy Cookbook Recipes
 
Ingredients
3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup soy sauce
6 tablespoons cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
4-1/2 teaspoons cold water
3-4 cups hot cooked rice
 
Directions
  1. Combine the sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, minced garlic, and pepper in a slow cooker. Add the chicken and stir to coat.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is very tender.
  3. Carefully remove chicken to a serving platter and cover to keep warm.
  4. Skim fat from cooking juices and transfer juices to a small saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually whisk into the juices. Turn the heat to high, and bring liquid to a boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened, remove from heat. Serve over chicken and rice.
