This morning before work I pulled out the slow cooker, threw in a handful of ingredients, and knew the only thing I'd have to do for this Honey Teriyaki Chicken when I got home was shred the chicken and heat up a bag of rice in the microwave then serve it up in some bowls and sit our butts down in front of the TV.
Not what I'd consider Game Day food but we did enjoy this healthier take out version of Little Man's favorite Asian dish, teriyaki chicken.
You will end up with a lot of leftovers. My plan for the chicken is to top an Asian cabbage slaw which will get it ate up over the weekend. Again, not Game Day food but it'll be ate while we watch college ball on Saturday and pro ball on Sunday.
