Honey Teriyaki Slow-Cooker Chicken.

Eureka! We found it! (The sweet spot between flavorful and kid-friendly, that is.) Whether you make it now or make it later, this easy make-ahead chicken is downright genius. If you like to stock up on freezer meals, you can combine all the ingredients in a freezer bag for ready-to-go frozen meal kits. Or place prepped ingredients in the slow cooker instead for a weeknight dinner that practically makes itself.


Honey Teriyaki Slow-Cooker Chicken


  • 24 oz boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki baste and glaze (from 12-oz bottle)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
