Honey: I have substituted sugar for the honey in the past with delicious results.
Cornstarch: Tapioca flour and arrowroot powder both work well in this recipe if you don't have cornstarch.
Powdered spices: You can use the real thing (e.g. diced onion, minced garlic, grated fresh ginger) if you prefer. I find this dish much more kid friendly if the flavor from the spices can be dissolved and therefore not detected by my little ones!
Mirin: Please do not omit or substitute any ingredients for the mirin. It is a sweet Japanese cooking wine that's found in the Asian section of most major grocery stores. Mirin is a key ingredient to make the most delicious teriyaki sauce you've ever had!
Store this crock pot teriyaki chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
