Teriyaki BBQ Chicken Legs in the Slow Cooker


3 ingredients and a slow cooker.  This couldn’t be simpler to throw together.

And it’s really good too!  I’m not sure why I thought to mix Teriyaki  and BBQ sauces, but the combination makes a flavorful sauce that was a hit with the kids.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

In addition to the teriyaki and bbq sauces, you’ll need chicken legs, of course.  I used a bag of frozen legs that I defrosted part way in the microwave.  You could also use any other cut of chicken or even pork or beef with the sauce.  And I thought it would be great on the outdoor grill.

Don’t worry about measuring exactly with this.  I used the whole bottle of each, but that was a lot more sauce than necessary.  Next time, I’ll go for 1/2 bottle of each.

  5. Just tried this tonight and it let me down. Should have known it was too good to be true. I wanted so badly for it to be good but it just wasn’t. The chicken was not good enough to stand on its own but maybe with some rice or wrapped up in a fajita it would be okay. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t terrible or anything but at best it was just okay. I used sweet baby rays instead of KC but I can’t imagine that would have made a difference. Anyway thanks for the recipe, I may not have liked it but I sure like trying stuff!

  6. Chicken was very tender… and flavorful.. it was easy and my family enjoyed it.
