Chicken Teriyaki recipe

Don’t you love it when you try a new recipe and it’s a winner? All too often I see a mouth-watering recipe, buy all the ingredients, and whip it up only to find myself wishing I’d stuck with an “old faithful.” This Crock-pot Teriyaki Chicken made the risk worth taking! It has now become a classic family fave around our home.

This recipe is quick to prepare and will tingle the taste-buds!. No special ingredients needed in this recipe — you probably have most of the ingredients on hand. The best part? You can throw all the ingredients in the crock-pot and forget about it until a few minutes before dinner. Now, that’s my kind of cooking!

Chicken teriyaki in the crock-pot


1 bag of boneless skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts (about 2.5 lbs)
3/4 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
3/4 c. white sugar
1 t. dried garlic
1/2 t. pepper
2 T. corn starch (or more to desired thickness) combined with 2 T. of water.
3 T. Orange Juice


Place chicken in Crock Pot. Mix soy sauce, vinegar, white sugar, garlic, and pepper together and pour mixture over the chicken. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender. After the chicken has cooked, remove the chicken and set aside. In a small sauce-pan, bring the teriyaki sauce then turn the mixture on low and simmer for a few minutes. Then, stir in the OJ. Now, gradually add the corn starch mixture until the sauce reaches the desired thickness.

Yields: 4 servings

Serve with white rice and stir-fried broccoli.
