  • Cooking Method: Slow Cooker
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4-5 hours
  • Cuisine Type: Asian

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing
  • Chopped green onions for garnishing

Cooking Instructions

  1. Place chicken breasts in the crock pot.
  2. In a bowl, mix teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger until well combined.
  3. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
  4. Add sliced onion and bell pepper on top of the chicken.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Alternatively, cook on high for 2-3 hours if you’re in a rush.
  6. About 30 minutes before serving, add broccoli florets on top. This keeps them crispy, not mushy!
  7. Once done, remove the chicken and shred it. Return shredded chicken to the crock pot and mix with the sauce.
  8. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions before serving.

Suggestions

  • If you’re out of honey, maple syrup is a great alternative. It’s the sweet cousin that nobody talks about enough.
  • Feeling adventurous? Toss in some pineapple chunks for a tropical twist.
  • Serve over rice or noodles for a complete meal. Heck, even mashed potatoes work if you’re feeling rebellious.
  • To thicken the sauce, remove some of the liquid, mix it with cornstarch, and stir back in. Magic!
