Just kidding.

You’ll also need a Crock Pot, slow cooker, or instant cooker (which has a slow cooker feature). Also, measuring spoons and measuring cups. And maybe a small bowl to mix and beat. However, I’ve definitely mixed this sauce with a spoon in a bowl of standard cereal before, so you do.

Ingredients for the

Easiest Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki

As I said, the ingredients for this recipe should already be in your fridge or pantry, which is what makes this recipe so great. You just have to plan it! Here’s what you’ll need:

1 pound chicken breasts or thighs 1/2

  • tablespoon arrowroot starch
  • 1 tablespoon water 2 teaspoons

  • garlic powder 2 teaspoons
  • ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon
  • honey
  • 3/4 cup coconut amino acids
  • Just add your

  • chicken breasts or


to your slow cooker (thighs are always my favorite, But you do it!).

Then, in a separate container, first mix arrowroot starch (sometimes called arrowroot flour) and water. Combining arrowroot with water helps it blend better with other ingredients. Sometimes, if you don’t do this step first, arrowroot becomes… gross. And we don’t want chopped sauce. Brute!

Once the arrowroot and water are well combined, add the rest of the ingredients (garlic powder, ground ginger, honey and coconut amino acids) to the bowl and mix again, until you get a tasty sauce. Then, pour that delicious sauce over your chicken in the slow cooker, cover and simmer for 4-5 hours. You may need a little more time, depending on how big your chicken pieces are. Just check that it is fully cooked and move on to the next step.

Then, crush the chicken with two forks (I just do this directly in the clay pot) and stir to completely cover the chicken with sauce. Dinner is served!

What to serve with this AIP Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki

The best thing about this recipe is that it is very versatile! I usually serve it over cauliflower rice, but you can use regular white rice if you’re not following AIP or Paleo. Also, I like to pack as many vegetables as possible, so I often serve it with a side of steamed or roasted broccoli as well. Steamed or sautéed shredded cabbage and/or carrots also combine well. It also goes great with zucchini and/or red peppers (which are not AIPs, but are Paleo). Or eggplants and snow peas (none of which are AIPs, but are Paleo).
