I’m excited about this post because it’s the first time that I can debut my new pressure cooker! I was recently able to buy a Green Pan pressure cooker for a fourth of the cost and I used it for the first time making this recipe! Here is a picture of my amazing pressure cooker.
Now onto the recipe! This is such an easy meal to make; I don’t know why it’s not more consistently served in my house! All of the ingredients go into the crock pot in the morning and at dinner, you’re all set! I will warn you however, NOT TO OVERCOOK! I made the mistake the first time I made this, of cooking too long and the whole thing burnt to a crisp! I had to throw everything away and we ordered pizza that night.
- 2 chicken breasts
- 5-6 carrots
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 6 Tbls apple cider vinegar
- 3/4 tsp ground ginger
- 3/4 tsp minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 6 tsp cornstarch
- 4 tsp cold water
- hot cooked brown rice
1. Place frozen chicken in your crock pot to cook.
*I cut my chicken into bite size pieces in order for the marinade to saturate the chicken*
*your chicken might need to be more raw/cooked in order for you to cut it*
2. In a large bowl combine the sugar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, ginger, garlic and pepper. Pour over the chicken.
3. Clean and slice about 5 or 6 carrots and add to your crock pot mix.
*the carrots do not need to be cooked beforehand; they will soften in the hours to come*
3. Let cook for 3-4 hours or until chicken is tender.
4. Begin cooking your rice to be ready when the chicken is done cooking.
*I used my pressure cooker here and it only took me 15 minutes to cook the brown rice!*
5. Remove chicken and vegetables to a serving platter and keep warm.
6. Skim the fat from the remaining liquid in your crock pot. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
7. Combine the cornstarch and water until smooth and gradually stir into teriyaki liquid. Stir until sauce is thickened.
8. Pour your teriyaki sauce over your chicken and vegetables. Put your rice into a bowl. Dinner can begin!
