Chicken Teriyaki Casserole

Chicken Teriyaki Casserole: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

When it comes to cooking one of the things I really dislike is when a recipe requires you to brown the chicken or cooking it completely before adding other ingredients and then cooking it in the oven. With this recipe there is no precooking the chicken, it cooks in the oven with the sauce. Then you add the other ingredients and cook it some more.
