Teriyaki Chicken Bowls


Anyone having one of those days where you just want to throw something in the crockpot and be done with dinner in a snap?  This recipe is just that, and if you like the chicken bowls from Teriyaki Stix, you should definitely try this one!  This recipe has become one of my husband's favorite meals....the first time we ate this, he was ooh-ing and aww-ing the whole time.  In my opinion, if it passes the husband test, this one has got to be good!  Enjoy! :)

Ingredients:
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup soy sauce (I don't recommend less sodium)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Thickening Sauce:
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons water

Directions:
1.  Place chicken thighs in crock pot.
2.  Whisk together remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken.
3.  Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or 3-4 on high.  Serve over rice.
4.  If you would like to thicken the sauce, remove sauce from crockpot and bring to boil in saucepan.  In separate bowl, combine cold water and corn starch.  Add corn starch mixture to sauce and stir until it thickens.  Continue to add more corn starch/water until sauce reaches desire thickness.

  10. I made this before and it was yummy! This time around I'm making it with chicken breast and omitting the red pepper flakes! Hopefully it's still yummy! Thanks for the recipe
