crock pot teriyaki chicken

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken
(great freezer meal option)

Our Rating: ★★★★½

1 lb chicken 
1 c chicken broth
1/2 c soy sauce
1/3 c brown sugar
3 minced garlic cloves
sesame seeds

Place all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 5-6 hours or low for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken. Dissolve 4 teaspoons of cornstarch in 5 tablespoons of water and pour into crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Replace lid and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes or until slightly thickened. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice and steamed vegetables.

If you want to make this a freezer meal just put everything raw (minus the cornstarch and sesame seeds) into a gallon sized freezer bag and lay flat in freezer. Label the bag with cooking instructions. Let thaw in fridge for 24 hours before putting it into your crock pot once you're ready to use. I separate all my freezer meals into 2 quart sized bags since it's just Eddy and I to feed so far. That way we can save one of the meals to eat at a later date. :) You will still need to cook as directed and then add the cornstarch mixture following the same directions.
