  • 1/4 cup 1/4 (60ml) honey

  • 2 tablespoons 2 (30ml) mirin (rice wine)

  • 2 cloves 2 garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon 1 ginger, minced

  • 1 tablespoon 1 (8g) cornstarch

  • For the Casserole:
  • 1.5 pounds 1.5 (680g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoon 1 (15ml) vegetable oil

  • 3 cups 3 (570g) cooked white rice

  • 2 cups 2 (260g) mixed vegetables (e.g., carrots, peas, corn)

  • 1 cup 1 (150g) shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Green onions, sliced (for garnish)

  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)

Directions

  • For the Teriyaki Sauce:
  • In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, honey, mirin, minced garlic, and minced ginger.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water to create a slurry.
  • Heat the saucepan over medium heat until the mixture comes to a simmer.
  • Gradually whisk in the cornstarch slurry and continue to simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Remove it from heat and set it aside.

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch (23x33cm) baking dish.
  • Season the bite-sized chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until they are browned and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the cooked white rice and mixed vegetables. Pour the teriyaki sauce over the rice and vegetables. Stir to combine.
  • Transfer the rice and vegetable mixture to the greased baking dish.
  • Place the cooked chicken pieces on top of the rice.
  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the casserole.
