Who doesn’t love hibachi? Problem is, it’s not always easily accessible and it most certainly can be expensive. That’s when Pintrest came to the rescue! Like many nights I had no idea what to make for dinner. To be honest I get sick of things quite easily. Until I stumbled upon this recipe. I want to share it with you all as well as post pictures from making it for dinner recently. This is not my recipe and all credit goes to the linked page and original poster.
Let’s start with the ingredients!
- Sesame Oil (2 tablespoons)
- Canola or Similar Oil (2 tablespoons)
- 1 Pound of Chicken
- Frozen Veggie of choice (1 1/2 cups)
- 3 Green Onions
- Minced Garlic (3 gloves / 2 teaspoons)
- 2 8.8 oz Packs Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice White Rice
- 3 Eggs Scrambled
- Soy Sauce (4 tablespoons minimum)
Ready to cook?
Heat a skillet or wok. (Can’t wait to ask for a wok on my registry!!) Add the sesame and canola oil. Once heated add in he chicken. Add salt and pepper. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and cooked through. Take chicken out, you want to keep the oil so a slit spoon is recommended.
Add frozen veggies (I used peas and carrots) and green onions (sliced small) to pan with leftover oil. Heat, stirring occasionally, until veggies start to soften. Add the garlic and heat a few more minutes, continuing to stir occasionally. This is when I begin to cook the rice. Each bag takes 90 seconds in the microwave. Leave finished bags on the side with chicken for now.
While rice is cooking push the veggies off to one side of the pan. Add the eggs to the other side and cook your scrambled eggs. Once eggs are done mix in with veggies. Odds are this has already started happening anyway. Add in the chicken – mix. Add in the rice (it should be finished by now) – mix. Add the soy sauce. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Mix up everything very well. I let it heat in the skillet another couple of minutes and then it is ready to serve!
This recipe is super easy, takes about 30-45 minutes depending on how quick you prep (I am slow), and tastes just like hibachi chicken from a restaurant. And I don’t even use a wok! I mean, even Jake likes it!! (Don’t mind the mess.) Here is a link to the original recipe again! Recipe
