Teriyaki Chicken

I love slow cooker meals.  They are so quick and easy to throw together.  I love being able to get dinner all ready earlier in the day, instead of trying to figure out what to make at 5:00 when the kids are begging for dinner.  Which is exactly why I love this teriyaki chicken.  This chicken really couldn't be easier.  Simply put the chicken and sauce in the crock pot, turn on low and cook for 5-6 hours, serve over rice and steamed veggies and you've got yourself a quick, easy, stress free meal.
Teriyaki Chicken
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1-2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tbsp Water
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 lb. Chicken Breast or Tenders
Place the chicken in the crock pot.  In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over the chicken.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours.  1 hour before serving shred the chicken in the crock pot using two forks to pull it apart.  Replace the lid and finish cooking.  Enjoy!

Do you use frozen chicken?

Heather, Yep, I always just throw my chicken in frozen. I'm sure you could used thawed chicken as well. It would probably just take a little less time to cook.
