In the mood for something a little sweet and a little bit sour? Teriyaki chicken is a natural choice! How to cook it, though? What if we could get that signature glaze and powerful flavor in a crock pot?
We combined soy sauce and vinegar as the base for this chicken teriyaki, and added some complexity with a bit of molasses, ginger, and garlic. We let the chicken cook right in the mixture, then set the chicken aside and got to work finishing up the sauce. Some chicken stock added a little more richness while cornstarch thickened it up right the right amount. We only needed 2 teaspoons chicken stock, though, so if you don’t have an open carton sitting in the fridge, feel free to just use water. Serve this dish with a side of rice and veggies.
