I’ve found it for you! A beautiful, easy, and delicious chicken recipe. Even better, this chicken is made in a slow cooker or an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. Super easy.

No bottled teriyaki sauce here, folks. Sure, that would be easy, but this homemade sauce isn’t hard to make and it is a much better choice if you’re interested in reducing refined sugars and preservatives in your food. (This recipe is TERRAfit-friendly! Serve with brown rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa.)

I consider myself to be fairly new to the Instant Pot scene, but I am totally sold already. I am super impressed and happy with how well this recipe works in there! I LOVE how fast it is! Only had to cook the chicken for about 15 minutes. And it is cool that you can just thicken up the sauce real quick in there too.

Sometimes (or a lot of times) my dinner planning skills are just not up to par and I end up looking for something quick and easy that I can throw together at the last hour. I’m thinking I’ll be using the Instant Pot quite often in those times of need!

When I use 3 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast, I end up with about 8 cups of shredded teriyaki chicken with this recipe. Hope that helps to give you an idea of how much you’ll end up with!

This is an easy, family-friendly and healthy recipe. Give it a try! I hope you love it too!

Honey Teriyaki Chicken {Slow Cooker or Instant Pot}

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed (minced for slow cooker)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • optional garnish: chopped green onions, sesame seeds

Instructions

    Slow Cooker:
  1. Spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray, or use a slow cooker liner. Place the raw chicken breasts into the slow cooker.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, onion, minced garlic, pepper, and ginger. Pour over the chicken.

  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 4-5 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and shreds easily. Once chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot and shred.

  4. Whisk together the water and cornstarch. Slowly whisk it into the sauce and heat on high until the sauce begins to thicken, while continuing to stir or whisk. (You can thicken the sauce in a saucepan on the stove top at medium high heat, if that works better for you.)

  5. Place the shredded chicken back into the pot with the sauce and stir to coat. Serve over rice and garnish, if desired.
  6. Instant Pot:
  7. Spray the inside of the Instant Pot inner pot with nonstick cooking spray. Place the raw chicken breasts into the pot.

  8. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, onion, crushed garlic, pepper, and ginger. Pour over the chicken.

  9. Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and shreds easily. Once chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot and shred.

  10. Whisk together the water and cornstarch. Slowly whisk it into the sauce and use the Saute setting, continuing to whisk. Cook for a few minutes while the sauce begins to boil and thicken.

  11. Turn off the pot. Place the shredded chicken back in with the sauce and stir to coat. Serve over rice and garnish, if desired.
