  • 1 cup Soy Sauce (Low sodium works great too)
  • ¼ cup Green Onions, sliced thinly
  • ¼ cup Brown Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Avocado Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger Powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Green onions and Sesame Seeds for Garnish
  • 4-5 med sized Chicken Thighs ( you can use chicken thighs for this recipe but chicken tenderloins and chicken breast for this recipe too. Chicken thighs will be the most moist chicken for this recipe)


  • 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!
