Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

Like I’ve said before, some girls collect shoes, I collect appliances, and handbags. Because, let’s admit it, what girl doesn’t love a good handbag. But anyways, as I was saying, I collect appliances and my latest addition is my Slow Cooker!

So far this is one of my favs!! And of course, I couldn’t just get a plain old black or grey, I got a teal striped one from Black + Decker.

This was the perfect recipe for the slow cooker. All you have to do is add all the ingredients, give it a mix, turn it on and go about your business. Finished in about 3-4 hours. You can put it on in the morning and it’s done by lunch! Plus it uses ingredients that your probably already have on hand, so it’s just right for an easy meal without too much fuss.

Here’s the recipe. I hope you enjoy!
