Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

When I was at the grocery store last week they had chicken thighs and chicken legs on sale. Needless to say I racked up on some framily sized packs of both. Since I have so many chicken parts I’m now struggling to find something different to do with all of it.   I went through the pantry and found some almost forgotten ingredients and spices and came up with crock pot pineapple teriyaki chicken.

Here is how I did it:

  • 4 each of chicken thighs and chicken legs, skin removed
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of corstarch
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons of teriyaki sauce
  • (1) 6 ounce can of crushed pineapple with juices
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger

Place the chicken thighs and legs in an even layer as possible in a 5 – 6 quart crock pot.

Evenly sprinkle the onions and peppers over the top of the chicken.

In a medium sized bowl combine the brown sugar and cornstarch with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients to the brown sugar/ cornstarch mixture and thoroughly mix. Pour the mixture over top of the chicken, onions and peppers in the crock pot.

Cook on low for 7 – 9 hours or on high for 4 – 5  hours. Serve with favorite steamed veggie and rice.
