Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple
Here’s a super easy recipe for slow cooker teriyaki chicken. With just 5 ingredients dinner doesn’t get much easier or more delicious.
It’s really not that hard to make teriyaki sauce from scratch, which is what I did for this Teriyaki Chicken stir-fry a while back.
But sometimes I prefer the ease of opening a bottle.
The key is finding a high quality teriyaki sauce without a lot of additives and preservatives that you like.
It will make a huge difference. (I like both SoyVay and Kikkoman Takumi brands.)
