Teriyaki Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken 

Serves 4-6 (we usually have leftovers)

2 1/2 lbs chicken thighs or tenders (today I use frozen thighs)

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup soy sauce

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp minced fresh ginger

1 medium onion, chopped (I use sweet onion)

Combine everything into your slow cooker. Set temperature on low for 6 hrs.

Serve with rice and your favorite steamed veggies. I like to sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over mine.

FREEZER prepping:

This meal could be divided into two freezer meals for smaller families.

Stir brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic together into a large bowl. 

If you are using fresh chicken....toss chicken and onion in soy mixture and then transfer to a ziploc bag.

If you are using frozen chicken.....place chicken and onion into ziploc bag and then pour soy mixture over it.

Label with cooking directions. Thaw 30 minutes before putting into your slow cooker, no need to thaw completely.
