I don’t know about you, but some weeks are so packed with errands and commitments that cooking a meal seems out of the question. That’s when I take out my crock pot.
It’s a life saver and ensures that I’ll be able to enjoy a delicious meal without all the hassle of preparing it right when I get home from work.

One of my favorite dishes to make is this Crock Pot Honey Teriyaki Chicken. For the most part, it is prepared in the slow cooker and the sauce takes less than a minute to finish up on the stove. Plus who doesn’t love chicken teriyaki?
The chicken shreds into tender pieces that are ready to absorb the sweet soy sauce and honey-based teriyaki sauce. And believe me when I say, this recipe results in the perfect sweet and savory sauce.
Of course, I indulge in this with a bowl of hot jasmine rice. But I think it would also be quite delicious served as a bao or Chinese steamed bun.
The freezer aisle at the Asian market carries pre-made steamed bun that you can easily warm and fill with Honey Teriyaki Chicken like a sandwich.
Either way, make sure to try this amazing Asian recipe out, and bring some Asian flavors to your dining table.

Slow Cooker Honey Teriyaki Chicken
Slow Cooker Honey Teriyaki Chicken – tender chicken with sweet, savory, and delicious honey teriyaki sauce. Made in crock pot and takes only 10 mins to prep.
In a crockpot, combine the chicken, sake, mirin, soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger. Season with black pepper, to taste. Turn on the crockpot to high and cook for 4 to 4 1/2 hours.
Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and shred using two forks.
Pour the reserved liquid from the crock pot into a small sauce pot and heat to a rolling boil. Mix together the water and corn starch; stir it into the sauce and cook until thick. Add the chicken to the pot, and top with sesame seeds and green onions.
I tried this recipe but mine is on the dry side – no idea what I did wrong. How could I fix it?
Hmm, maybe it’s the temperature / setting of your crock pot? Add more teriyaki sauce will help, too.
I wondered what to do with my chicken today. Now I know. Just put the lid on the crock pot and now my day is mine. There’s a bubble bath calling me. Thanks again for sharing Bee.
LOL thanks Nancy for trying this honey teriyaki chicken recipe. :)

Oh this is such a good recipe. Teriyaki flavors are a favorite of my family. Definitely trying this one soon. Thanks for sharing, Bee.
Can I use other cut of chicken instead of breast or can I mix both thigh filet and breast meat together?
Yes of course, you can use breast and thighs for this crock pot honey teriyaki chicken recipe.
Thank you for the nice recipe.
When you say 2 breasts do you mean one full (two sided) breast or two full (two sided, each) breasts?
Two pieces of one full breast. See the picture of the chicken breasts in the crock pot.
Looks delicious! Def going to try it out. :)
I follow your amazing recipes by Facebook, and even here in Belgium, Europa, I didn’t have any trouble following the steps. Thank you very much!
But here I’ve a major trouble: there isn’t crock-pot in our french culture, so I wonder how to cook the chicken in a classic pot in oven.
If anyone has any idea about the temperature/thermostat I have to use, and the type of pot…
You can use a Le Creuset French oven to make this honey teriyaki chicken recipe.
Thank you for the quick answer :)
(I’ve got a very old le Creuset from my grandmother kitchen, it always is in perfect condition. Love it. Perfect for any pot recipe)
And to you have any idea of the temperature?
Just put on medium – high heat on Le Creuset.
Hi there. Just put ingredients in casserole dish with a lid and cook at 150 degrees for a couple of hours or until thoroughly cooked through. Enjoy!
Thank you so much for this! It seems simple enough for husband and I who are both working. If I don’t have mirin and dry sake at home, can I use bottled teriyaki sauce as substitute? If yes, how much shall I use? Also, as we both work from 9am-6pm, do you suggest I turn the crockpot ‘low’ or ‘medium’ for cooking of 8-10 hours? Many thanks!
Yes you can use bottle teriyaki sauce, just use it enough for your taste. Yes, low.
Is slow cooker the same as crockpot? Can I use that instead?
Yes, it’s the same as slow cooker.
