This gluten-free, soy-free, allergy-free, and paleo recipe is a dump-and-go Crock-Pot dinner you'll be making on repeat. Use the leftovers for lunch or make it for a freezer-friendly meal prep option! Just chicken and a naturally sweet homemade teriyaki sauce!




  1. Add your chicken breasts into a large slow cooker or Crock-Pot and pour the teroyaki sauce over the chicken.
  2. Set the slow cooker to low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
  3. Remove the chicken and shred it using two forks on a plate and either add it back to the sauce in the slow cooker or add the sauce to the plate of chicken.


*If using chicken thighs, use equal amounts in pounds of chicken.

**If adding vegetables, add them in the last 2 hours of cooking for best texture.
