Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

I found this recipe (via Pinterest) from #Gimmesomeoven

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce (I use Bragg's)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker, cooking 4-6 hours (depending on your appliance) until chicken shreds easily.
If you would like to add to or thicken the remaining sauce, whisk together 1/4 cup cold water with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. Add this to the remaining sauce in a small saucepan. Allow it to boil 1-2 minutes and pour over the chicken.
We served this with rice and sprinkled the top with sesame seeds. Yum!

To freeze, just combine all ingredients in a freezer bag before cooking. When ready to serve, dump contents of bag in your slow cooker and you are good to go!

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
