Teriyaki Chicken and Rice Casserole

¾ cup low sodium soy sauce

½ cup water

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon honey

¾ teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon olive oil

½ teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons corn starch

2 tablespoons water

1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

32 oz frozen mixed vegetables (preferably unsauced stir-fry or Asian varieties)

1 cup drained canned pineapple tidbits or chunks (packed in juice or no added sugar)

3 cups cooked brown rice


Preheat Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Prepare the Sauce:

In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, ½ cup water, brown sugar, honey, ginger, olive oil, and garlic. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Once boiling, remove the lid and cook for an additional minute.

Thicken the Sauce:

While the sauce is coming to a boil, mix the corn starch with 2 tablespoons of water in a separate dish until smooth.

Add this slurry to the boiling sauce, stirring to combine. Cook for another minute until the sauce thickens, then remove from heat.

Cook the Chicken:

Lay the raw chicken breasts flat in a 9×13-inch casserole dish.

Pour about a cup of the prepared sauce over the chicken.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken breasts are fully cooked.

Prepare the Vegetables:

While the chicken is baking, steam or cook your frozen vegetables according to the package directions.

Shred the Chicken:

Once the chicken is cooked, remove the casserole dish from the oven.

Shred the chicken in the dish using two forks.

Combine Ingredients:

Add the cooked vegetables, pineapple, and cooked rice to the casserole dish with the shredded chicken.

Pour most of the remaining sauce over the mixture, reserving a small amount to drizzle over the top when serving.

Stir everything together in the casserole dish until well combined.

Bake Again:

Return the casserole dish to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.


Remove from the oven, drizzle with the remaining sauce, and serve.
