I've seen loads of slow cooker chicken teriyaki recipes on Pinterest, but after clicking the pin and delving into the recipe, I've found a lot of dissatisfied pinners. So, in love with the idea of making teriyaki over the course of a day instead of in one quick fry up, I decided to devise my own. The best thing about this dish is how tender and tasty the chicken is. The chicken is just shut up! good. The al dente veggies fit perfectly and the sticky rice? You'll be in heaven.

For the
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup gluten free soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
scant 1/2 cup chicken stock
1 pack (400g) chicken thigh fillets
2 tbsp cornflour/cornstarch
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp gluten free teriyaki sauce


Sticky Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

  1. Simply put all of the ingredients except for the teriyaki sauce in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. Half an hour before you're ready to stop cooking, add the teriyaki sauce and increase the setting to high.
  2. Prepare your side items. I made sticky rice and pan-fried broccoli with spring onions/scallions to go with the dish and they were delicious!
  3. Troubleshooting: if your sauce hasn't reduced fully by the time you're ready to add the teriyaki sauce, simply pour the food from the slow cooker into a saucepan on the stove, add the teriyaki and reduce until desired stickiness. It should take anywhere from 10 t 20 minutes to be fully reduced.
  4. Want to use different greens? Consider cucumber sliced into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler or a chiffonade of thickly-textured savoy cabbage. You could even throw in some carrot matchsticks and radishes.
