Teriyaki Chicken and Fried Rice

We love to order teriyaki chicken and fried rice whenever we go to hibachi Japanese restaurants. We finally learned how to make it at home. It is sooo good and not hard to do. The most important thing is you have to cook the rice ahead of time and let it cool in the refrigerator. We have a rice cooker and use 2 cups of rice (and 2 1/2 cups of water). After it is done, I put it in the fridge to cool the night before I make it. It makes a lot of rice, but its great for lunch the next day too.

Here are the recipes:
Teriyaki Chicken
3 Chicken breasts cut up
Kikkoman Teriyaki sauce (A must buy, it is awesome!)

1. Cut up your chicken into bite size pieces
2. Put olive oil into a frying pan to heat up
3. Cook the chicken until its no longer pink
4. Pour the kikkoman sauce generous in the pan (I use about 3/4 of the bottle)
5. Cook on low while you are doing the rice to simmer and let the sauce season your chicken

Fried Rice
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
4 Green onions, chopped thinly(or 1/2 cup reg. onion-I love the green onions in it thought)
1/3 cup diced carrots
4 cups cooked white rice (not sure if my 2 cups of uncooked rice equal this but use what you would like)
2 eggs lightly beaten
3 Tablespoons Soy sauce1. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat.
2. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
3. Reduce the heat to medium, and add the carrots, rice and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes.
4. Use your stirring spoon to make a well in the center of the rice and pour the eggs into it. Let the eggs cook for 1 minute, then slowly start to stir and incorporate the egg into the rice.
5. Add the soy sauce and cook for 2 minutes longer, stirring and tossing with the spoon.
6. Serve with your chicken!
This recipe comes from a website that shows you how to cook the rice, so there is no excuse not too make it. Click here for the video.

Bon Appetit!
