I just crave slow-cooker meals in the winter because they are just too easy to pass up. There is nothing like throwing a few things in the crockpot and just waiting for the good smells to fill the house. I like to do chicken in the slow cooker the most because I find it such a pain to mess with and cook properly. Slow cooking takes all of the guess work out of that.

Make a quick soy/teriyaki sauce and pour that in with your chicken breasts and that is it! Slow cook for 4-5 hours and then shred. Voila! Easy pulled chicken teriyaki. I added roasted broccoli with my dish because roasting is really just as simple to me and I especially love the crunch it gives to broccoli. Feel free to steam broccoli with this, or add a different veggie entirely!
