  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)

  • cooked jasmine rice (about 4-6 servings) or your preference of rice

Grease slow cooker with oil, wash chicken strips and place in slow cooker, sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  In medium bowl mix together broth, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar and garlic. Pour over chicken. Cook on low 6 hours, or high for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. When chicken is done, shred it in the slow cooker with two forks, stir shredded chicken, mixing it well with the sauce that's in the slow cooker. You can set the slow cooker on the serve setting now, until ready to eat. 
Spoon shredded chicken over cooked Jasmine rice. 

I like to serve this with a side of stir fry vegetables.

Oven Roasted Potatoes


You will need:

  • 4 medium potatoes (peeled and cut into cubes, I used russet potatoes) 
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. dried chives
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil (or other oil of your choice) 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, grease a 13" x 9" sheet pan, mix all of the above ingredients together in a large bowl, spread it evenly on the pan, turn the potatoes with a spatula every 15 minutes or so, cook until golden brown and tender about 40-45 minutes or so. For softer potatoes cook less time, for crisper ones cook a little longer. After they are cooked sprinkle with more salt, pepper and chives or other favorite seasonings to taste, if desired. Serves 4.

Enjoy!
