Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki1

Oh man oh man this chicken teriyaki I made this week was a big ole hit.

I love the fact that I can make the teriyaki sauce so easily without buying a bottle at the stove. It is so much easier than I thought too! No high fructose corn syrup just yummy honey.

Serve it up over a rice and even add a little steamed broccoli if you want. It’s all good!
