Fresh ginger. This takes your crock pot teriyaki chicken from good to WOW. The fresh seasonings and ginger really uplift this dish.
Steps To Make This Recipe.
Step 1: It doesn't get any easier here. Pile all the ingredients into a clean crockpot set to high. Start with the chicken breasts on the bottom. Pour water or chicken broth over it so it doesn't stick to the bottom and then add all other ingredients to the pot. Set it to high and leave it for 4 - 5 hours.
Step 2: You can take the chicken out and shred it, cube it or leave the breasts whole and serve it.
