Ill say it over and over, this is seriously the best Teriyaki Chicken Casserole recipe! It’s no secret that we love Asian inspired recipes in our home, and this casserole is one of our favorite main dishes. This teriyaki chicken casserole and our most popular recipe on our blog, Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl are always in our dinner rotations, and we rarely have left overs. If you love how easy casserole recipes are, you will love our Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole, and Baked Cheese Tortellini.

Ingredients for Teriyaki Chicken Casserole

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts/Rotisserie Chicken: I love to use rotisserie chickens when I’m in a hurry. They are easy to shred and add to any dish.
  • Minute Rice: Minute rice is so easy and simple to make, and won’t become mushy when added to the casserole.
  • Baby Carrots: Slice baby carrots in half lengthwise and steam.
  • Broccoli Florets: Cut fresh broccoli florets into small bite size pieces and steam.
  • INGREDIENTS FOR HOMEMADE TERIYAKI SAUCE
  • Soy Sauce: To cute down on the sodium, I prefer to use low sodium soy sauce.
  • Water: Needed for the teriyaki sauce.
  • Brown Sugar: Adds the sweetness to the teriyaki sauce. You can use light or dark brown sugar.
  • Rice Vinegar: Is commonly used in Asian flavors.
  • Sesame Oil: This is optional, but I love the flavor it adds to the sauce.
  • Ground Ginger: I prefer to use ground ginger over fresh grated ginger. Ground ginger adds the slightest ginger flavor.
  • Minced Garlic: I like to use the pre-minced garlic in the jars. It’s easy to use and you can store the jar in your fridge for future recipes.
  • Honey: Honey adds a sweet flavor and also helps to thicken the sauce.
  • Cornstarch: Adding cornstarch when the sauce comes to a boil, will thicken it up to the perfect consistency.

How to make Teriyaki Chicken Casserole

We love to make teriyaki chicken with homemade teriyaki sauce in our family. This casserole is so easy to make and is packed full of flavor.

  • Preheat oven to 350F and lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Start by steaming carrots and broccoli until they are soft, but not mushy. Vegetables can be steamed by placing them in a steamer, or by placing vegetables in a large microwave safe bowl with about 4-5 Tbsp. of water. Cover tightly and place in the microwave for 4-5 minutes. Check vegetables around the 2 1/2 minute mark. Re-cover and continue steaming until vegetables are tender, not mushy.
  • Cook minute rice according to directions on the box until it becomes light and fluffy.
  • In a small sauce pan add soy sauce, water, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil (optional), ginger, garlic, and honey to a slight boil. In a small cup mix cornstarch and water until it becomes smooth. Pour cornstarch slurry into saucepan and whisk until teriyaki sauce starts to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Start assembling your casserole by placing cooked shredded chicken in casserole dish, then spoon cooked rice over chicken, and add steamed carrots and broccoli. Pour teriyaki sauce on top and stir to combine all ingredients well. Reserve some teriyaki sauce to drizzle over cooked casserole when serving.
  • Place in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until warm throughout. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Substitutions for teriyaki chicken casserole

  • Substitute white rice for brown rice or quinoa.
  • Substitute fresh broccoli and baby carrots for a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables. Steam the frozen vegetables just like you would the fresh veggies.
  • Substitute chicken breasts with chicken thighs or a tender steak.

Teriyaki chicken freezer meal

Teriyaki chicken casserole can be made into a freezer meal to keep for yourself for an easy go to dinner, or send it to a friend or family member. It freezes well and heats up nicely for a delicious dinner on any busy night. Simply add the cooked chicken, cooked rice, steamed veggies and teriyaki sauce to a disposable oven safe casserole pan. Cover tightly and write down the directions on the top of the container. Before baking, place frozen casserole in the fridge and allow it to thaw for a few hours. Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 20-25 minutes or until warm throughout. Be careful not to over bake the casserole, you don’t want to dry it out. Enjoy!
