Living a real food lifestyle often means having to say no to the convenience of packaged foods, since the vast majority contain less than “real” ingredients. Of course, it gets even more challenging, when you’re living a grain-free real food lifestyle.
Thankfully, there’s nothing that gets me more jazzed about cooking than a good challenge. And that’s how this easy and delicious recipe for Soy-Free Teriyaki Chicken came about – my love for taking favorite comfort foods and transforming them into healthy grain-free versions that everyone can enjoy whether they’re GF or not.
The secret to creating a delicious soy-free teriyaki sauce is using coconut aminos, which taste remarkably similar to soy sauce. The coconut aminos combined with all-natural sweeteners and a flavorful array of seasonings results in a thick, slightly sweet and tangy sauce perfect for topping slow-cooked chicken and veggies.
And since this is a slow cooker recipe, it really couldn’t be an easier! There’s just one extra small step after the chicken and veggies are done cooking, and that’s thickening the teriyaki sauce on the stovetop by whisking in just a touch of arrowroot powder. Then, generously spoon your delicious homemade teriyaki sauce over the chicken and veggies for a classic meal your whole family will enjoy down to the last bite.
