Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

A few months ago, my hubby and I chose to make a chicken teriyaki recipe. It was definitely NOT a hit with the family, too syrupy and the sauce was way too salty. I made it my mission to find a good recipe. I read the reviews of many of them and finally found a recipe that received nothing but good reviews! We made it last night and it was delicious! Definitely much better than the one from a few months ago! Plus, this only calls for 5 ingredients, so its simple to make!


1 cup soy sauce
1 cup sugar (I used 3/4 cup)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 lb chicken breasts (thawed or frozen)


In slow cooker, place chicken on bottom. Heat remaining ingredients in small sauce pan until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture on top of chicken. Place lid on slow cooker and cook 4-5 hours on high, or 6-7 on low. Once cooked, shred chicken. Serve over rice.
