"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!"
