Freezer friendly?

YES! You could create a crockpot bag. Basically you toss everything in a freezer bag (uncooked) and freeze.

Then when you are ready to cook, you would simply place the frozen ingredients in your crockpot in the morning and cook like normal. This is a VERY easy form of freezer cooking that can make your life a TON easier!

Oh make sure you have some of these handy Freezer bag holders . They are optional but you will love having an extra set of hands in the kitchen.

How to make crock pot Teriyaki Chicken:

1. First, get your crock pot out. I love to use my programmable crockpot when I’m going to be gone all day. Oh and to save time with cleanup, use Crockpot liners. 

2. Second, add the chicken to the slow cooker and put the chopped onion on top. We save a bunch of time by using a food processor to chop the onions. I actually keep diced onion in the freezer and it is one of my favorite meal prep tips.

4. Pour this delicious mixture all over the chicken. This is going to make your house smell amazing as it simmers all day.

5. Finally, let cook on low for about 6 hours and then take the chicken out. Shred the chicken and put back in the slow cooker and mix together with the sauce.

How to serve Slow cooker teriyaki chicken?

We normally just serve it with rice and call it a day. It is simple, easy and all the kids love it. I’m usually busy so it helps me to make crockpot rice.

If I’m in the mood for something green, I will add steamed broccoli that I fix in the microwave. It only takes a few minutes and it is so easy.
