take-out at home: simple slow cooker chicken teriyaki

Sometimes I want take-out without the expense, the pick-up drive or delivery wait.  Sometimes chinese food at home sounds like a good idea.  So, I came up with this slow cooker version of chicken teriyaki.  We got two plus tasty meals out of this for less than the cost of one chinese order.  This is my first Messily Ever After original recipe - please let me know what you think!

Simple Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki
A Messily Ever After original recipe

2-3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken pieces (I used 1 lb. breasts, 2 lb. thighs)
1 lb. bag baby carrots
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
20 oz. can pineapple chunks, in juice
1 cuup teriyaki sauce, low-sodium
1 Tbsp hoisin sauce (found in the Asian section in your grocery store)
1 tsp soy sauce, low-sodium
1/4 tsp ground ginger

Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker and cover with vegetables.  Add pineapple and juice.  Pour remaining ingredients over the top.  Cover and cook on LOW 6-6 hours or HIGH 4-6 hours.  Serve over hot rice.
