Teriyaki Chicken Casserole

Another recipe….
It’s easy and better yet…..good!
Voted a keeper.

Teriyaki Chicken Casserole


3/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoons cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons water
2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 (12 oz.) bag stir-fry vegetables
3 cups cooked brown or white rice


Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with non-stick spray.

Combine soy sauce, ½ cup water, brown sugar, ginger and garlic in a small saucepan and cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove lid and cook for one minute once boiling.

Meanwhile, stir together the corn starch and 2 tablespoons of water in a separate dish until smooth. Once sauce is boiling, add mixture to the saucepan and stir to combine. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken then remove from heat.

Place the chicken breasts in the prepared pan. Pour one cup of the sauce over top of chicken. Place chicken in oven and bake 35 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and shred chicken in the dish using two forks.

Meanwhile, steam or cook the vegetables according to package directions.

Add the cooked vegetables and rice to the casserole dish with the chicken. Add most of the remaining sauce, reserving a bit to drizzle over the top when serving. Gently toss everything together in the casserole dish until combined.

Return to oven and cook 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Drizzle each serving with remaining sauce.

Happy Friday the 13th!!!!

May nothing weird or unusually creepy happen to you today.

I wanted to share a few videos with you.

Watch Ya’ Mouth
(uses dental cheek retractors which you can buy on ebay…or so the say!)

Can you imagine playing this after a few drinks!!!

And speaking of drinks….

Have you seen the Tipsy Bartender videos???!!!

Beyond awesome!

I have and play both an acoustic and electric guitar.
I find myself at least at this time really liking the electric and playing rock and roll.
I have an Aria but I’m really wanting something…..more???

I came across this video with side by side comparisons between a Les Paul, Telecaster and a Stratocaster.
I think it is a very good comparison and you can certainly hear the difference between the three.
To my ear I really like the Stratocaster.
Take a listen.

And speaking of Stratocasters….
Which is better…..
American made or Mexican made?

For me I’m not out to buy something as a collectible to hang on the wall and gather dust (at least not at this time heh heh)
I want to play the damn thing!
After watching this comparison for me value wise I have no problem buying the Mexican made one at half what the American made ones are.
After all…..they are pretty much the same thing.

That’s it for for today.

I’m going to enjoy the rest of my day.
It’s supposed to hit 85 degrees!!!!
I might have to make one of the Tipsy bartender’s drinks!
