Lately the idea of having Chicken Teriyaki has appealed to me. I found a crockpot version of the meal and was so excited to try it. My hopes and expectations for this meal were high. However, this meal disappointed.
Let’s backtrack a little. I received a new crockpot for Christmas with a timer. I thought I could finally have dinner cooking while I was at work. After 4 hours it was supposed to kick from low to warm. However I think it sat on warm for too long . The meal overcooked and was burnt in the crockpot. I would hardly say it was an edible meal, yet there we were trying to salvage what we could. LOL. If I were to re-try this meal on a weekday I think I’d keep it on warm all day then kick it up to high when I get home. Another option would be to make the meal on the weekend so I can watch it cook closer. I also did not bother to take a picture because it was a hot mess of black. Black pineapples, black potatoes, black carrots, and super dry chicken.
I still feel it’s worthy of mentioning since I’m not a chef or even a good cook. I’m attempting to make something and they all can’t be winners. However, if you make the meal and have more success I’d love to hear what you did.
