Crock Pot, Skinny Chicken Teriyaki

Kathleen and I put this together before church one Sunday.  All the reviews were very favorable.  We felt that it lacked flavor, though the chicken was very moist.

Crock Pot, Skinny Chicken Teriyaki

2 pounds (8 thighs) boneless skinless chicken thighs,
1 cup onions, chopped
⅓ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, from a jar (we used grated, fresh)
Black pepper, to taste

1. Place chicken in crock pot. Sprinkle onions over the chicken.
2. In a separate bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken.
3. Cover crock pot and cook on low for about 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender. Check after 4 hours.
5. Remove chicken from crock pot.
6. Skim fat from cooking liquid, if there is any.
7. To serve: Top 1 piece of chicken with a little sauce. Serve with 1 small baked potato or ½ cup brown rice. Mash some teriyaki sauce into the baked potato and drizzle with little more teriyaki sauce over the top. If using rice, place chicken on top of rice and drizzle teriyaki sauce all over top of chicken and rice. In addition the chicken could be shredded and topped on the potato or rice.

Makes 8 chicken thighs with sauce (each thigh 4 ounces and sauce) 3 pt plus
