How to Slow Cook Teriyaki Chicken

Welcome to the Cast Iron Lane Slow Cooker Series where I feature a delicious recipe that use a slow cooker to prepare the meal.

You can browse a wide selection of slow cookers here on Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Walmart.com.

Over the last ten years, I’ve noticed a significant difference in the heat and cook times of the various slow cookers available on the market. I feel like the newer slow cookers can tend to get a lot hotter than older models. (Maybe that’s just a combination of the age and level of use for each slow cooker.) You’ll need to adjust the heat levels and time according to your slow cooker.

Teriyaki Chicken is a great dish any time of year! I enjoy chicken served any which way – but this is a favorite! Pair it with a complimenting rice or side of pasta and enjoy!

I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Note: This recipe makes approximately 2 quarts. So you’ll need to choose a slow cooker close to that size.
