1. Chicken Teriyaki
Thumbnail image for Chicken Teriyaki
Chicken Teriyaki a simple dish made from sweet soy sauce and chicken thighs, It is usually garnished with green onions and sesame seeds. The dish has it roots in Japan but is now common in many many kitchens and restaurant around the world. The recipe can be used with many other meats such as pork, beef, or fish. My personal preference is the chicken version as chicken seems to have the perfect consistency for the dish. Pork seems to heavy, while fish is a little light. As with many foods, Chicken Teriyaki sauce is available in many supermarkets, but the homemade sauce is far nicer.

As you may know, I don’t do a lot of Crock Pot cooking. I guess I’d do more, but I usually don’t plan far enough in advance. I’m also not necessarily surrounded by people that love Pot Roast and other typical Crock Pot meals. However, I’ve seen a lot of recipes for Crock Pot Lasagna around the interwebs and decided this was some Crock Potting I could get into.

Frozen peas are such a useful ingredient. I use them here to make a delicate risotto. People get nervous about cooking risotto but, trust me, it's actually very easy. Gently fry chopped shallot, add in risotto rice, then slowly, a ladle at a time, add in the simmering Knorr Reduced Salt Vegetable stock, stirring it until absorbed. Repeat the process until the rice is cooked through, serve with roast chicken. Simple.
