Teriyaki Chicken Casserole

Ingredients You'll Need

Here's everything you need to make this mouth-watering casserole:

Chicken and Marinade:

  • 1 lb chicken breasts, diced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (optional, for thickening)


  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1 cup snap peas


  • 2 cups cooked rice (white, brown, or cauliflower rice for a low-carb option)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (optional, for extra flavor)


  • Sesame seeds
  • Green onions, sliced

Substitutions and Dietary Notes:

  • For a gluten-free version, use tamari instead of soy sauce.
  • For a vegetarian version, substitute chicken with tofu.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Preparing the Chicken

  1. Marinate the Chicken:
  • In a bowl, combine soy sauce, water, honey, rice vinegar, ginger, and garlic.
  • Add the diced chicken to the marinade, ensuring it is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours for the best flavor).
  1. Cook the Chicken:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a baking dish.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and add the marinated chicken (save the marinade for later).
  • Cook the chicken until browned and cooked through about 5-7 minutes.

Step 2: Preparing the Vegetables

  • While the chicken is cooking, prepare your vegetables. Slice the bell pepper, carrots, and snap peas, and cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets.

Step 3: Assembling the Casserole

  1. Layer the Casserole:
  • Spread the cooked rice evenly in the greased baking dish.
  • Layer the cooked chicken on top of the rice.
  • Distribute the prepared vegetables over the chicken.
  1. Prepare the Sauce:
  • Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan. If you prefer a thicker sauce, dissolve 1 tbsp of cornstarch in 2 tbsp of water and add to the marinade.
  • Bring the sauce to a simmer over medium heat, stirring continuously until it thickens.
  1. Add the Sauce:
  • Drizzle the thickened sauce evenly over the casserole.

Step 4: Baking the Casserole

  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake at 375°F (190°C) for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the casserole is golden and bubbling.

Storage and Reheating
