Chicken Fried Rice

Winner winner, chicken dinner!  Aside from my love off BBQ food, I love chicken fried rice!  Now that I have a griddle, I thought I would make a homemade version of the recipe.  It was my first time, and man was it worth it!

How to cook rice.

Before testing my hibachi skills on the griddle, I had to cook the rice.  It’s pretty simple, even if you don’t have a rice maker or instapot. You can also use day old leftover rice.

Start with rinsing the rice. This step will help remove excess starch, resulting in grains to separate better when cooked.

Next, in a sauce pan, pour 2 cups of dry rice, 4 cups of water and a little salt.  Let if cook until the water starts to boil.

Turn down to simmer, cover with a lid and let it cook until all the water has evaporated into the rice.  Do not remove lid to peak or stir.  Once the liquid is gone, let it rest for a few minutes and fluff with a fork.

Set aside for 24 hrs.  You can also use any leftover white rice.

Griddle time!

Finally, time to use my Loco griddle.

To get things cooking, cube up some chicken breast and mix in corn starch and soy sauce and chop up 1 medium white onion.

Oil up the griddle and throw both on separate ends of the cook top. While the chicken and onions are cooking add in some minced garlic and ginger for that extra flavor and continue to flip over until nice and fragrant then combine the onion in with the chicken and move to the side of the griddle.

Oil up the the griddle again, this time add the day old rice and a bag of frozen peas and carrots.  Mix in the onion chicken combo, pour some Bachan’s Japanese Barbecue Sauce, sesame oil and continue to mix hibachi style

Next, in the center of rice mix, place some cubed butter and eggs.  Scramble the eggs until cooked.

Finally, add in 1/2 cup of chopped green onion and mix one last time.

Let me tell you, first time making chicken fried rice and it was a hit!  The whole family enjoyed a delicious meal.  And we had lots of leftovers!
