Does your family always agree on what to have for a meal? Or do you end up feeling like a short order cook?

I’m asking because I’ve been having a conversation with a great friend of mine and her and her husband can not agree on food. Sounds like something that isn’t really major right? When I actually think about it though this becomes a HUGE problem or it would in my life. I can’t imagine my husband not wanting to eat what I make for a meal. Given the fact that sometimes he might turn up his nose if I make him try something “weird”. AKA out of his comfort zone and yes sometimes I just don’t tell him what’s in a dish until after he’s ate it! Surprising him like this is always entertaining.

During this conversation I had to ask her if she made a separate meal for him or what they did. He ends up eating at his mom’s house before he comes home from the farm. She makes her own supper and everything is just peachy. That is it was…until they decided to move and they will be on their own farm and he won’t be at his mom’s during work hours, which means he won’t be eating at mom’s which means what on earth is she going to do? I’m completely stressed over this. She seems not to be and as she reads this I’m sure she’s laughing at me.

The other week I did take pity on that poor husband of mine because I was sticking olives in something and I think I literally heard him gasp at the sight of them. I, on the other hand, eat olives straight out of the jar although I definitely prefer green over black. As I was altering his half of the recipe I thought, “This is for the birds.” There was no way this was becoming a habit!

So I end up usually making something we can agree on and I stretch his tiny little box of meat and potatoes and much as I can. There is nothing wrong with meat and potatoes and I love them dearly but sometimes I want some flavor in my food! Not that they don’t have flavor….you get what I mean right?!

Enter this amazing Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki into the equation. I knew I would love it because really why wouldn’t you? The hubs on the other hand, I was a bit worried about. I mean teriyaki? Sounds scary right? At least in his mind I’m sure it does! Totally not what he might have grew up with. I served with brown rice which is also out of his box and guess what? He had that bowl almost licked clean in no time at all. I was impressed. If there is a family member that needs to have their box stretched try this amazing Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki for dinner! And to that dear friend of mine…maybe this will pass the hubs inspection!

  • Cate @ Chez CateyLou

    This looks so good! I love teriyaki, and this would definitely be a crowd pleaser!

  • Danielle

    LMAO, I thought the recipe looked good so I clicked through and am laughing my butt off. ;) The hilarious part is that my husband discovered he liked Chinese food after our last trip to the cities. My fam all wanted to order Pizza Hut and I refused because my rule is that when I am somewhere where I can get something different than what’s available in Morris, I must do so. My sister and I got Chinese and he turned his nose up and said it looked disgusting. Later I got him to actually try some and he LOVED it! Lol Now he asks me to make Chinese food!!! So needless to say I’ll be making this! :)

    I made this dish tonight and was disappointed in the texture of the chicken. I used chicken breasts and the texture came out grainy and soggy and just plain weird. In reading other recipes for Chicken Teriyaki it seems it might have had a better result had I used Chicken thighs…wish this recipe would have mentioned this, for us cooking novices out there. I’m going to give it anther shot though, with thigh meat…thanks!!

  • Christianna

    How long does it take for the sauce to thicken?

    • Julie Evink

      It’s going to depend on the stove and pan but a good 5-10 minutes!
