Teriyaki Chicken in the Crock Pot

Fall has definitely arrived and it is time to break out the crockpot at our house. I love using my crockpot in the Fall. I love smelling dinner cooking all day long. It is just so warm and cozy. Teriyaki Chicken in the crock pot is the perfect easy Fall meal.  It’s actually good for any season.

I have recently become somewhat of a Pinterest junkie. My “To Try” recipe list has quadrupled as a result! Today’s recipe is one that caught my eye one day as I was Pinning away!

I served it over rice with a little sprinkling of green onion and sesame seed. It would be great with some stir fried veggies too! This recipe uses boneless, skinless chicken thighs so the meat is nice and moist. The cooking time is only about 3-4 hours on low.
