Teriyaki Chicken in the Crock Pot

This blog is like my mind - all over the place. One day politics, next day jokes, next day recipes. At least I actually remember writing each and every post, so we know it's not a dissociative disorder. But if I start to talk about myself in third person please bring it to my attention. Yeah, like SHE'D listen!

Anyway . . . . . today's offering to you all is,

Because what busy person doesn't enjoy a good crock pot recipe?

6-8 skinless chicken thighs ( I kept the skin on - who wants skinless chicken? And I think you could use any cuts of chicken, but legs might fall apart)
1/2 cup of soy sauce (I used 1/2 low sodium and 1/2 regular)
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. or more grated fresh ginger
2-4 garlic cloves, minced

Place chicken in Crock Pot. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over chicken.
Cover* and cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 6-7 hours.
Serve over rice.
*If you had to be told to cover the crock pot, there is something wrong with you. Then again I recently forgot to plug the blasted thing in, so who am I to judge?

Best slow cooker cookbook series out there!

I'll try this one day, when we get a crock pot.

Yum, that sounds tasty and easy. I never have fresh ginger on hand though---think the dried kind would do it justice?

I love that your blog is all over the place. It's perfect for my ADD.

You had me at thighs.

Shan - use fresh! Just break off a little fist sized bulb from the larger ones in produce.

OK, OK. It's one of those things I used to buy all the time and then I had Genevieve who refuses to eat anything spice-related and so I stopped cooking curries and things like that.
