    • We used light brown sugar, but either will work. The rice does not go into the slow cooker. In the ingredients it says cooked rice. You will want to prepare that at the end of the slow cooker chicken cooking time so it will be fresh and warm. The chicken is served over the rice.
  1. This was not good. Chicken was over cooked after cooking on low 4 hours. Three hours would have been plenty. Also, the sauce was very thin; like flavored water. I used the teriyaki sauce recommended in reviews and tried to thicken it with cornstarch but that didn't help. I cook a lot and read reviews when they are available. I tried this because it's simple and sounded good but was very disappointed. I threw this meal away and went out to eat instead. Don't waste your time. I don't write reviews but felt compelled to share my experience with this recipe.
    • Then you did something wrong. This recipe is easy and delicious! Chicken is never dry, and if you dont want runny sauce, add the teriyaki sauce from the bottle instead of the crock pot. I usually dont leave replays either but I can't stand rudeness. There are kinder ways to share your negative opinions!
