I have to be honest with you guys. Slow cooker recipes are not easy to photograph. They’re usually blobs of shredded meat and there’s only so much you could do to make it pretty – no matter how much tweezer-activity is involved! But beautiful or not, I still really need to share this with you.

It’s a no-fuss, no-saute, simple crockpot recipe. The hardest part about this is probably peeling and pressing the garlic but other than that, it should be a breeze! Just throw everything into your handy dandy crockpot and you are set. Just be sure to plan about 3-4 hours to really let the chicken get nice and tender so you can just shred it apart to juicy goodness. And with that sweet teriyaki sauce, you’ll want to finish the enter pot clean!

Now how easy was that?
