Being able to throw a meal into my crock pot for dinner is something I have always been extremely thankful for. This slow cooker teriyaki chicken is one of my go-to dinner ideas because it’s quick and the entire family loves it. Plus, because it utilizes the slow cooker I can throw dinner on earlier in the day and forget about it.

Here’s a super easy recipe for slow cooker teriyaki chicken. With just 5 ingredients dinner doesn’t get much easier or more delicious.

1. Combine chicken broth, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar and garlic cloves in large bowl.

2. Add chicken to sauce, and toss to combine.

3. Pour chicken mixture into crock-pot.

4. Cook on low 4-6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.

5. Serve over hot cooked rice and spoon extra sauce if desired.
