“Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken” is What’s for Dinner

Whenever possible I try to do a slow cooker meal on Wednesday’s since we have soccer practice.  While doing my meal planning over the weekend I came across this recipe and I have to be honest it was the white rice that drew me to this.  I love white sticky rice. I know that it nutritionally dense and does not do a whole lot for you, but man is it good.  Back to the recipe, it was really quick and easy to put together on Wednesday morning before work.  I made one substitution to the original recipe, I substituted the soy sauce for Coconut Aminos.  I try to avoid soy products in our diet and I love that there is an alternate.  Coconut aminos are soy free, have less sodium than traditional soy sauce, are gluten-free, dairy-free and the particular brand that I use is non-GMO.  It was the first time that I had used it in a teriyaki recipe {I used it in stir fry a lot}, and it was really good.  I don’t personally feel like it leaves a coconut flavor to the sauce.

So since it was the white rice that drew me to this particular meal, I felt like we had to have some to go with it.  If you have a Trader Joe’s in your area, they have some great organic frozen rice, both brown and jasmine white, in small pouches that are microwaveable and come three to a box.  They are the perfect amount of rice {we split one bag between the four of us. My girls are not big on rice}. Much to my dismay, my Trader Joe’s was out of white rice {the horror} so we had to have brown rice with our dinner.

This was SO SO SO yummy!  It received 4 thumbs up and will be included into the dinner rotation.

Until next time,
