Crock-pot Meals – Teriyaki Chicken

on August 26, 2014

Like many single people, I struggle with cooking for myself. Since I work 10 hours days, if I try to cook when I get home, it often means I’m eating late in the evening. In the mornings while I get ready for work one of my tasks is to try to put together a decent lunch so I don’t have to spend money in the cafeteria eating food that’s not always the healthiest.  Because of these things, I love my crock-pot. I can make a meal easily and have dinner ready when I get home. I’m always looking for good recipes to make for dinner that I won’t mind eating for lunch the next few days.

Recently, my sister sent me a recipe that’s been floating around Facebook and Pinterest. She had tried it and her family loved it. Since I love teriyaki chicken I knew I had to give this one a try. It almost, but not quite, stands up to my favorite teriyaki chicken from my favorite restaurant here in town.

Teriyaki Chicken

2 pounds chicken breast, cut into chunks
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce

Put all ingredients in the crock-pot and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. Once it is done, thicken with some cornstarch. I use a couple of tablespoons mixed with warm water until there are no lumps, then I stir into the mixture in the crock-pot.

Serve with rice and some steamed broccoli.
