Killer Hawaiian Style Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken Recipe Chef Selena June 6, 2014 Chicken, Cooking, Health, Recipes Growing up on the Hawaiian Islands you get to experience some awesome food and I just have to say that they have the best teriyaki chicken on earth. I especially appreciate the addition of fresh sweet pineapple. In thinking about Hawaii and making life easier for the everyday cook I thought I would put together a slow cooker recipe that features teriyaki chicken “Hawaiian Style” using my own (now not so secret) teriyaki sauce. What I enjoy the most about this recipe besides the chicken itself is that you can multiply this recipe as many times as needed depending on how many people you are feeding. In Hawaii we get major appetites and feed plenty people so 3 pounds of chicken thighs wont get you very far. So make sure you have one extra large crock pot and triple this hawiian style crock pot teriyaki chicken recipe up. Aloha!

Add sugars, rice wine, garlic and ginger whisk again until sugars are mostly dissolved. Set aside. Chop onion, bell peppers and pineapple into 1 1/2 - 2 inch pieces, large enough that they will hold up during the slow cooking process but not to large that they can't be easily eaten. Place half of vegetables and pineapple in the bottom of the slow cooker, arrange the chicken thighs in a slice layer on top of vegetables. Add the remain vegetables and pineapple on top of chicken and then carefully pour in the sauce. Which should just come to the top of the vegetables. Cook in slow cooker on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Serve teriyaki chicken over steamed jasmine rice. Notes Ensure your slow cooker is working properly: Test chicken with instant read thermometer to ensure chicken temperature is at least 165 degrees prior to serving. ***Freezer adaptable*** Just follow the directions for this recipe and stop before you put it all in the crock pot, instead place it in a large freezable container or freezer bag. Freeze and use it at a later time. Just place in refrigerator to thaw over night and stick it in the crock pot in the morning on low. When you get home from work dinner is ready! By Selena T.
