This was pretty tasty - not quite teriyaki but close. Will def make again. Served over rice and with an Asian veggie blend.
I made this for my grandsons first birthday party It is delicious!! I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and added a teaspoon of sesame oil and a few red pepper flakes for a little heat. Will definately make this again YUM!
Made this tonight for dinner...oh my goodness !!! Probably the best teriyaki I have ever made at home. I did tweek it a little (not that there is anything wrong with the original recipe).; I added pineapple tidbits to the sauce before putting it in the crockpot - looking back, I should have added just the juice, then added the pineapple when I added green pepper chunks and green onion slices (about an hour before finishing) so that they would have retained their color. Would have made for a better presentation. I have to admit, I was picking out chicken at hour number 3. My daughter stopped by and had a quick taste...her response/ "Oh, wow !". Definitely a keeper...thanks for sharing!
