I ran to this recipe online , it was adapted from Rachael Ray’s website , she’s famous with her quick 30 minutes meal . Well this one wasn’t a quick 30 minutes meal , and i am not really into her recipes either . But this one caught my eye .. easy and it’s like forget it and let it cook by itself . It doesn’t call for too much ingredients , but one thing that you must have , it’s the teriyaki sauce itself . Although in my opinion , you can always make your own teriyaki , this recipe also similar to my Indonesian Ginger Chicken recipe , that one though you make your own sauce .
Anyway , in case you do not have slow cooker , you can always use dutch oven and let it cook in the oven with low temperature and cook for about 3 hours or so . But most people now , they have slow cooker .. so anyway , here it is , a recipe for a quick and easy yet yummy food !
You will need :
3 lbs of chicken thighs , you can always replace the dark with white meat , but cooking time would be shorter too
cornstarch , enough to dredge the chicken on it
Dredge the chicken on the cornstarch and shake off the excess starch , and brown on each side for 4 minutes , high heat . Transfer into the slow cooker or dutch oven .
5-6 garlic cloves , minced
3-4 tbsp. ginger , minced
1 small onion , chopped
bunch of cilantro , chopped
1 bottle of teriyaki sauce
3-4 tbsp. of honey
Pour all ingredients above into the slow cooker on top of the chicken . Let it cook on low for 5 hours of high for 3 hours . If you use dutch oven , bake at 325 F , for about 3 hours .
Once it’s done , serve on a bed of jasmine rice , and topped the chicken with julienne of cucumber , red bell pepper , and carrots , mix with lime and few drops of olive oil .
