For the teriyaki sauce, in a mixing bowl, add the soy sauce, green onions, brown sugar, avocado oil, ginger powder, and minced garlic. Mix until combined.
Add the Chicken thighs to the crock pot. (Plan on about ⅓ lb meat per adult and ¼ lb per child.) Pour the teriyaki sauce on the chicken
It's best to use chicken thighs for this recipe but chicken tenderloins and chicken breast work fine too. ( Chicken thighs will produce the moistest chicken. )
Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. If you're unsure if your chicken is done, use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you would like some teriyaki sauce to serve with your Crockpot Teriyaki chicken, you can use the teriyaki sauce in the crockpot or you can thicken it on the stove.
To Thicken it on the stove, Heat the marinade until it boils. In a small separate bowl, add one tablespoon of cornstarch and a couple tablespoons of water. Mix until it is combined. Slowly add the cornstarch to the sauce and stir until slightly thick. Serve over rice or steamed veggies. Enjoy!
