This Teriyaki Chicken Casserole is the perfect way to serve up Chinese food for dinner without the need to order it in or stand over a stove.  It’s one of my go-to easy family dinners since I almost always have all the ingredients on hand.

I love the bright colors of the carrots and peas in this dish. The kids love the flavor! That’s why this is  one of my favorite busy weeknight dinners.

How to Make Teriyaki Chicken Casserole

You’ll love how easy this dish is to put together. The oven will do most of the work in this dish, so you can help the kids with homework (or just take a few minutes to catch your breath!).

Step 1 – Prepare the Sauce

Yes, the dish will mostly cook in the oven, but you’ll have to start at the stove to make the sauce. Don’t worry, it’s a simple matter of combining a few ingredients (water, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, cumin and garlic) in a pot. You’ll stir them over medium heat to get them to blend together, then add a little cornstarch to thicken up the sauce.

Step 2 – Bake the Chicken

Next, you’ll pour HALF the sauce over the chicken and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes.

Step 3 – Finish the Dish

Finally, you’ll add the remaining ingredients to the chicken. Just stir well to make sure everything is coated in sauce. Then bake for an additional 10 minutes and you’re done!
