Mommy Meals Monday: Crockpot Teriyaki

Posted by Lily Kay at 10:36 PM
Todays mommy meal needed to be quick, easy and nutritious. Nothing beats throwing a bunch of ingredients into a pot, turning a dial and coming home to a fully cooked dinner. Not to mention that it makes your kitchen smell amazing. This morning I was in a rush and I knew that I would be coming home later than usual. So I decided to make a quick crockpot meal. I decided to do a Chicken Teriyaki with Longbeans.
Here is the ingredients for 2-4 servings:
1) 2 lbs skinned, boneless chicken breasts cut into strips.
2) 2 cups of long beans cut into smaller sizes.
3) 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce. I used Lawrys Teriyaki marinade with pineapple flavor.
4) 1/4 cup crushed pineapple.
5) 1/4 cup water.
6) Couple dashes salt and pepper ( optional ).

You literally throw all this in your crockpot, stir, place lid on top, turn this wonderful device on and you are done. My crockpot will have this meal cooked in 6 hours on the low setting and 4 hours on the high setting. You will need to refer to your crockpots user manual.
These are long beans. I picked them up from the farmers market and had never cooked with them before, nor did I have any idea what they were. I pretty much just threw them in to use them and they turned out very good. They are much like long string beans. You can substitue your long beans with string beans or any other vegetable that you prefer.

Do you know anything about long beans?
