Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken and Stir Fry Veggies

Need a new go-to dinner recipe? This Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki is SO simple - it takes just a few minutes to throw into the crock pot and it always tastes amazing!

We LOVE our crockpots. No, love is an understatement. We don’t know how we would survive without them!
This is one of our favorite go-to meals. With just 4 items, your dinner is ready to go. It’s so easy and it’s always a crowd pleaser, whether with your kids or your spouse. Here’s all you need:
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (you can use frozen or fresh – both will work)
  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Bag frozen stir-fry vegetables
  • Cooked rice

Our favorite Teriyaki Sauce

This isn’t sponsored, we just always love this teriyaki sauce (we use it for this recipe and this recipe, too). The less sodium tastes just as good as the full sodium, too.

You can use any type of teriyaki sauce or marinade, too.

How to make slow cooker teriyaki chicken

  1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner. Place your chicken in the crock pot (if you need a new one, this slow cooker is our favorite).
  2. Pour the teriyaki sauce over all of your chicken (we usually use 1 to 1 1/2 cups).
  3. Cook for about 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. You want to make sure it is cooked, but don’t over cook it or the chicken will be dry. If you use chicken that isn’t frozen, it may cook quicker by about an hour or so and you may want to check it to make sure it doesn’t overcook.
  4. About 10 minutes before you eat, stir-fry the veggies on your stove top (or even your microwave). You could also throw them in your crock pot for the last 15 minutes of cooking. We would not recommend throwing your veggies into the crock pot to cook with the chicken at the beginning, because they tend to get mushy.
  5. Place some rice in a bowl (don’t cook your rice in your crock pot – it will be too mushy) then place your veggies over top of the rice, and then top it with your chicken. The chicken should fall right apart from cooking (we don’t cube or chop it up before putting it in the slow cooker), and tastes great shredded.
  6. If you need extra sauce to put on top, you can scoop whatever is leftover in the crock pot or use the last of the sauce from the bottle.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I usually use frozen chicken breasts)
  • 1 (10 ounce) bottle Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen stir fry vegetables
  • 4 cups cooked rice

Instructions

  1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place your chicken in the crock pot.
  2. Pour the teriyaki sauce all over it (I use about 1/2-3/4 of the bottle).
  3. Cook for about 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low (you want to make sure it is cooked, but don't over cook it or the chicken will be dry).
  4. About 10 minutes before you eat, stir-fry the veggies on your stove top (or even your microwave). I have thrown my veggies into the crock pot to cook with the chicken before, but I don't like it as much that way because they tend to get mushy.
  5. Place some rice in a bowl, put veggies on next, then throw your chicken on top.
  6. If you need extra sauce to put on top, you can use what is in the crock pot or what is leftover in your Teriyaki bottle.

    The only problem with frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot is that bacteria is more likely to grow than if the chicken is defrosted because of the low temperatures and the extra time it takes to cook it from frozen. It's not incredibly common just be aware that it can lead to food poisoning!
  2. I usually add the frozen vegetables last 10-15 minutes of cooking in the crockpot and have had no problems with it being mushy :) just a tip for lazy people like me who don't like washing extra dishes lol. Also the vegetables get a good coating of glaze on them ;)

    ive got 2 bone-in turkey thighs in crock pot right now, they were still a little frozen. i domt know how much meat i will yield though, any thoughts? i left the skin on for flavor. i have to lie to my 2 grown sons whom i live with due to health, i try to make my own usually but sent my son to look for store-bought. so funny, he brought me your preferred brand that i had never seen before and i didnt look at your recipe till i was preparing it. i have tell them its chicken so how long on high do you think before its cooked so i can pull the skin off and roughly cut to pretend its chicken, one doesnt like turkey! LOL i hope you answer soon thanks, ive never done this before.
