I am always on the lookout for a way to use up leftover chicken.  When I can do it in a casserole that has 4 of the 5 food groups then I am elated.  You don’t even need a side dish with this Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry Casserole.  Literally, everything you want to serve your family is in one dish {minus a glass of milk}.  No leftover chicken?  No worries, it doesn’t take long to cook up a couple of chicken breasts and shred them.  The perfect weeknight meal and it can even be made ahead.

Stir fry is one of my very favorite meals.  It is so quick and easy to pull together.  In class, I always have students who are adamant that they don’t like veggies.  A stir fry lab later and…minds are changed.  It is amazing what a little teriyaki sauce can do.

Begin with a 16 oz. bag of frozen stir fry vegetables.  The one I bought had broccoli, carrots, snow peas and water chestnuts.  Cook in the microwave according to package directions.

Then measure out 1 cup of your favorite teriyaki sauce {Yoshida brand is our favorite}.

Stir to combine and pour into your favorite large baking dish.  A 9×13 or 12″ round pan works best.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until it is hot and bubbly.  It will not take long because everything is already cooked.  To finish, drizzle with remaining teriyaki sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Serve warm and watch your family enjoy every last bite.  The leftovers also warm up great.  1 pot, 4 food groups and lots of happy faces.
