This is a quick and easy slow cooker version of teriyaki chicken, a Japanese favourite. It’s full of flavour!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 Brown onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 Garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1/2 Cup Soy sauce (or Tamari for a low salt alternative)
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Grated ginger
  • Pinch Black pepper
  • 4 Chicken breasts


  1. Place onion, garlic, soy sauce, honey, ginger and pepper in the crock pot of a slow cooker. Stir well to combine.
  2. Add chicken breasts and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. After the cooking time, shred the chicken breasts using two forks. If the sauce is a bit runny you can add some cornflour (mixed with water) and cook for a further 10 minutes on high.
  3. Serve with rice and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped spring onion.


This is a family favourite. I love that it is a genuine one pot recipe which means minimal clean up and it is so quick and easy to prepare! I also serve it with some greens like beans or broccoli.

  • This looks and sounds so delicious. I’m loving my slow cooker more and more. Can’t wait to try it


  • I am absolutely loving these Slow Cooker recipes. This appliance is on high rotation in my house and I am always looking for different and new recipes to try. I stroll the supermarket aisles looking for slow cooker recipe bases and/or anything to inspire me. I love this forum where I can learn so many new ideas. Thanks so much. I love teriyaki and this is going on the meal list for this week.
