Found: The 5 Most Saved Crockpot Recipes in Pinterest History

Updated 05/07/19

I know I will regret saying this as soon as the temperatures dip below 65, but I'm excited for fall. Or more specifically, fall food. From Halloween candy and full-bodied crockpot soups to the chicken wings, nachos, and buffalo chicken dips that tend to accompany football games, fall is bursting with robust flavors and comfort foods that simply can't be beat.

While I admit that I'm more of a food connoisseur than an actual cook, my unused crockpot, still in its original packaging, is making a mockery of me and I'm determined to dip my toe into the world of slow cooker recipes this fall. With that, I tapped the data team over at Pinterest to get my hands on the most popular tried-and-true crockpot and slow cooker recipes on the entire sharing platform.

According to their numbers, The Recipe Critic's is currently the number one most-saved crockpot recipe on all of Pinterest, with over 292,000 saves. Taste of Home's comes in second with 167,000 saves, followed by Gimme Some Oven's at 160,000, Creme de la Crumb's at 85,000, and Damn Delicious's  at 79,000. Below, find the top five slow cooker recipes on all of Pinterest.

Rice wine vinegar
Fresh ginger, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
Add the chicken breasts to the bottom of your slow cooker in a single layer.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the garlic, onion, honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and black pepper until combined. Pour the mixture on top of the chicken breasts. Cover slow cooker, and cook on high for four to five hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily with a fork. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon to a separate bowl and shred it using two forks. Transfer the remaining teriyaki sauce from the slow cooker to a medium saucepan.

Meanwhile in a separate bowl, whisk together the cold water and cornstarch until the cornstarch is dissolved and no longer lumpy. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the teriyaki sauce mixture, and whisk to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, and let it boil for about one to two minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat, and pour the sauce on top of the shredded chicken. Toss to combine.

Serve topped with scallions and toasted sesame seeds if desired.
