Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken
Juicy, tender chicken coated in a glistening sweet yet savory teriyaki sauce. Simply delicious and worth it!
Let's start cooking!
Step 1 - Cook teriyaki sauce
- In a pot on medium heat, add 2 tbsp vegetable oil. When hot, add garlic and ginger and fry for 1 minute, until fragrant and caramelized.
- Add sugar, 160 ml light soy sauce, 25 ml rice vinegar, white part of spring onions and 450 ml water, then bring to a boil.
Step 2 - Cook chicken
- In the same pot, add chicken legs, cover, reduce to heat to low and simmer for 1½ hours, until chicken is tender.
You can use a slow cooker for this recipe as well - start the dish before you run some errands and come home to a steaming, delicious dinner.
Plate and serve!
Allow meat to fall off the bone, then tear strips away. Serve on top of steamed white rice, then garnish with sesame seeds, 1 tsp sliced spring onion. Serve hot!
