Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

Here is a quick, easy recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki. This can be an easy make-ahead for the freezer. I always skin my chicken and package it in meal-size quantities, so all I do to make this a freezer meal is throw the other ingredients (except the pineapple) in a second freezer bag, label, and freeze. Then, when it’s Teriyaki Chicken Night, I grab a bag of chicken, the bag of other ingredients, and throw them in the crock pot together. (The best way is to put them in the fridge the night before so they’ll thaw enough to put them in the crock pot.) Then I add the pineapple when it’s almost time to eat. It’s so simple, and the whole family will eat it.

  1. I love your idea of putting all the ingredients in freezer bags and just take out when ready to make the recipe. I will be doing just that as time is always of the essence and this way I can prep over the weekend and be ready for weekday meals.
