A Recipe from Pinterest...

So, I won't lie. Recipe pins on pinterest, whilst appearing exceptionally tasty at face value, often leave me wondering  if they're really any good. Or, more to the point, if the beautiful image you're looking at actually belongs to the recipe typed in to the two lines of text below it. 

Case in point:

According to the caption, this is crockpot teriyaki chicken, created with the mere combination of just a few ingredients and left to it's own devices in a slow cooker for a 4 - 6 hours. (might I add, my suspciousness of pinterest recipes is peaked here, given this chicken is coated in sesame seeds, yet there are none in the recipe!)

Stuck for dinner inspiration one evening I turned to my pinterest 'board' entitled food. This delicious morsel above is what caught my eye. So, I cooked it.

1kg chicken thighs (I put them in the slow cooker frozen!)
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 hrs in the slow cooker (i cut the thighs up halfway through with a pair of kitchen scissors)

Well, hello! You know those sticky chicken sticks you get at the sushi train place? Yakitori Sticks? Yeah, this amazingly simple recipe, tastes JUST like those!

Highly recommended. No photo from my attempt, we devoured it too fast!
