Teriyaki Chicken Casserole with Vegetables and Quinoa
This one may look complicated, but it really
was much easier than it looks . . . especially if
you make chicken in the crock pot or have
leftover shredded chicken from another meal.
Be careful with bottled Teriyaki sauce if your
family has dietary restrictions. Most contain
gluten, soy, and MSG. I included an easy DIY
sauce I use at the end.
You can be flexible and use other vegetables
that your family prefers, but cooking times for
these may vary.
2 cooked Chicken Breasts, shredded*
2 cups Chicken Bone Broth (or regular broth)
1 cup Quinoa
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup Teriyaki Sauce **
1 cup Broccoli
1 cup Carrots, sliced
1 cup Green Beans
1 cup Mushrooms, sliced
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a
9x13 inch baking dish with non stick spray.
2. Heat the broth in the microwave for about 2
minutes until warm.
3. Add quinoa and hot broth to pan. Add salt,
pepper, and olive oil.
4. Cover pan tightly with foil and bake for 15
5. Remove from oven and stir. Place vegetables
on top of quinoa, cover again with foil.
6. Cook an additional 15 minutes or until
vegetables are tender but still crisp.
7. Remove from oven and top with shredded
chicken breast and Teriyaki Sauce.
8. Return to oven and cook an additional 5-10
minutes uncovered until vegetables are fully
cooked and chicken is warmed through.
*I cook my chicken breast ahead of time in the
crock pot so it is ready for me to shred and add
to recipes when I get home in the evening.
