Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken Legs

We’ve been using Laura’s homemade teriyaki sauce for a while now – I love how simple it is, and how you can control the salt and sweetness of the sauce.  We love it.  So, we decided to try it over chicken legs.  Yum-o. 

Not to mention, this dish goes together in minutes!  You’ll enjoy it, I promise. 

Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken Legs

Ingredients

  • 6-8 chicken legs
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 C water
  • 2 T corn starch

Directions

Begin by mixing together 1 C water with 2 T corn starch.  Add in 1/4 C soy sauce, 2 T honey, 1 tsp. ginger and 1 tsp. minced garlic. 

Place the chicken legs in a lightly olive oiled crockpot base. 

Pour the sauce over the top. 

Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, until chicken legs reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees. 

Serve with rice. 

Enjoy!

  2. If I want to cook this on the stove-top and use chicken breast cut in to one-inch pieces, how long should I expect to cook it and are there any other substitutions I would need to make? It looks delicious and I want to try it tonight.

    1. I'd brown the chicken pieces first, and cook them until they are pretty well done. Add the sauce and simmer for 20ish minutes. Check to verify the chicken is done, and serve over rice.

    2. I made this tonight and it turned out great. I did add a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar to sweeten it a bit. My kids loved it! Thanks.

    1. Great question! Sorry about that omission. I've updated the recipe -- but it gets mixed in the sauce with the water, cornstarch, ginger, honey & garlic.
