Easy Eats // Simple Slow Cooker Teriyaki Bowls

I, most definitely, am no chef when it comes to creating my own recipes so I typically turn to Pinterest or my recipe binder for dinner ideas.  However, on occasion, I’ll have enough of a hodge podge of ingredients in my house that will spark some cooking creativity.  This latest recipe is seriously one of my favorites because it tasted like something I would put together at Genghis Grill.  Ever been to one or a place like it?  They’re awesome and delicious and you totally should!
uncooked chicken breast (about 1 lb – 1.5 lbs)
1 8oz can crushed pineapple
1 package frozen stir fry vegetable mix
2 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
2 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt
Place the uncooked chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker and pour the teriyaki oven sauce over it.  Spread it out so that the chicken is completely covered.  With a fork, poke holes into the chicken so that the flavor will soak into the meat.  Cook on high for 4 hours.  Go ahead and cook your rice at this time and set in the refrigerator for later.
After 4 hours, shred the chicken and stir in the crushed pineapple.  Turn the cooker to warm or low and let it simmer while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Saute the frozen stir fry mix in some olive oil until soft.  Add the cooked rice and cook for another 2 minutes.  Stir in the soy sauce and garlic salt.  Let this simmer, stirring frequently, for a few more minutes.  
Spoon the vegetable and rice mixture into a bowl, top with the shredded chicken, and enjoy!

XO, Kelly
