Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki

I’m all about using my slow cooker. For me, the slow cooker is like an extra set of hands that does the work in the kitchen when I can’t be there. Like my own version of a mother’s helper. (Because goodness mercy — who can afford one of those?) Recipes from the slow cooker, like this Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki, are the only reason my family gets to eat some nights. Sad, but true.

Easy slow cooker recipes, like this Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki, make dinner time much more manageable and a whole lot less stressful.

Every time I cook with my slow cooker I think about that old infomercial with the “set it and forget it” slogan because that’s how I feel with my slow cooker. I put all my ingredients into the slow cooker and I can literally forget it about until the timer goes off. It doesn’t get much easier than that, and I love it!
