Lazy Girl’s Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

Boy, it has only been five days after New Year, and it feels like it is already February. How time flies. It also seems not so long time ago that I made a crock pot recipe named Asian Beef with Broccoli ,  that I feel guilty making another recipe using crock pot. By now, you may have noticed that I am a lazy cook or maybe you will think I love my crock pot. Which is right. Aside from the microwave, I think my crock pot is the next most used utensil in my kitchen.

In fact last night, I made a crock pot beef stew for today’s  meals, but I cannot share it in the blog because although it was good, it looked dry. I will try to make it again and see if next time the stew will be good enough to be posted here.

Today I am going to share with this lazy girl’s Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken.   Again it is easy, not too sour and not too sweet. You can freeze easily freeze the left over if you happen to have one.  Just put it in the Ziploc and you are good to go.

You can make it too salty or not. You can add or lessen the amount of soy sauce, or, you can add more sugar. It is all up to you.
