This Chicken Teriyaki Casserole is a full meal in one pan! Vegetables, rice, and shredded chicken with an incredible sauce to make any mouth water!
Don’t you just love one pan meals? How about casseroles? I know I sure do! Well, this Chicken Teriyaki Casserole is just that!
A few days ago, my family had a crazy busy night! One kid in golf, the other with tons of homework, and my son had football. Needless to say, time was not on our side and I knew I needed to keep dinner simple and quick!
Luckily, I had all the ingredients to make this one pan meal and opted to go that route! I have made this for my family several times over the years and its always a favorite, even with my kids!
A quick tip, keep a bag of cooked/shredded chicken in your freezer. Then, you can pull it out and use it for quick meal options! I usually double the amount of chicken needed in a recipe and put half in the freezer! Nights where I make meals like this one, I pull it out and am set!
In this casserole, I like to use stir fry vegetables. You can find them in the frozen (or fresh) area of your grocery store. If you aren’t a fan of that variation, feel free to use your favorites!
Another option is to use brown rice in lieu of the white rice I used! Even Quinoa works!
So many options and ways to make this your own, right?!
