Put simply, crockpots make cooking easier. This method of cooking is invitingly hands-off, and the results are mouthwatering. Just throw your chicken in with teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and broth, then let the mixture stew for about 6 hours, depending on the level of heat you opt to use. When you return to the crockpot, you’ll be greeted with a piping hot meal, slow-cooked to perfection. This dish from Key Ingredient takes about 6 hours to slow-cook and yields 4 servings.


  • 1 pound chicken (sliced or cubed)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup teriyaki or soy sauce (with or without sesame seeds)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
