Freezer Teriyaki Chicken

I can't find where I found the original recipe but I think it was over at New Leaf Wellness.  This is a recipe that you put together the ingredients ahead of time in a freezer baggie, freeze it and then when you need it, pull it out, thaw and dump it in the crockpot.  I wasn't too sure about this but it came out GREAT and the flavor was fantastic.  At the first bite, there were exclamations of joy from my family so this one is a keeper!!

Freezer Teriyaki Chicken

6-8 boneless chicken thighs
1 cup teryaki sauce
1 cup water
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 cloves garlic
a few slices of ginger

1.  Add all ingredients to a gallon freezer bag.  Freeze.

2.  Thaw overnight in refrigerator.

3.  Add to crockpot.  Cook on low 4 - 6 hours.

* This makes a LOT of sauce but it helps to keep the chicken moist since it sits in the liquid.  You can use the sauce on rice or over veggies if you want.
