Teriyaki Chicken Tacos

TERIYAKI CHICKEN TACOS- Sequins at Breakfast

I made this chicken, and enough for leftovers, earlier in the week for teriyaki chicken bowls. I had no plans of what to do with the leftovers other than to nibble on them throughout the week. So, when it dawned on me that I should take this teriyaki chicken and make yummy little tacos I knew that they would be good. What I didn’t know was exactly how good they’d be and that I’d only ever want to eat teriyaki chicken in the form of tacos for the rest of my life. No joke! Topped with pickled red cabbage, cilantro and sriracha, you have yourself a very delicious taco!
The chicken was made in a crock-pot, so its extremely easy and that slow cooking really packs a flavorful punch!

  5. How long does the chicken need to cook in the crock pot?

    • Hi Lauren!
      The chicken can cook as long as you’d like. Most crock-pots have different settings, 4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours…etc. So, it really depends on how much time you have or when you put the chicken in. I used frozen chicken and cooked it for 6 hours. Hope that helps!
