Here is a really yummy casserole for those who enjoy Teriyaki Chicken. It was a bit time consuming but only because I made the Fried Rice too, if you already have leftover fried rice I think it would work pretty well in this dish.
It got a big thumbs up from the recipe and I even enjoyed it the following day for lunch.

Using low sodium soy sauce is a must! It's less salty!
