This Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki recipe is fabulous because you can make it in your Crock Pot which saves you a tonne of time.  Chicken Teriyaki is one of my husbands favorite meals so finding an easy slow cooker version was a must for us.  This sauce is also naturally sweetened with honey so it makes the recipe even better.


  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 small chopped red onion
  • 1 glove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Cold Water
  • Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • Sesame Seeds


Step 1 – Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker

Step 2 – Mix together the honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, onion , ginger and pepper and pour over the chicken breasts

Step 3 – Cook on low for 6 hours

Step 4 – After the  6 hours remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl, shred with forks

Step 5 – In a separate bowl mix the cold water and cornstarch until it is smooth and not lumpy

Step 6 – Pour the Terikyaki sauce from the slow cooker into a sauce pan and add the cornstarch mixture
