"I have made this for my husband, he said its a keeper. I also made it for my 37y/o daughter(who is a very picky eater), her husband and the 6and 7 y/o. Everyone loves it. Have made it about 6 times in the last year."

"WOW this was very good! even my Father in-law had seconds!

I used low sodium teriyaki, and chicken broth, and did not add the 1/2 tsp salt. As my family is very picky when it comes to veggies I changed it up with snow peas, carrots, peas, corn, and green beans.
I will add this to one of our favorites!"
