Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice

Share Button

My hubby loves this little hole-in-the-wall restaurant and always gets the same thing: Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice. He seriously loves it. So I decided it would be a good idea to make our own at home! I use the Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki available at Costco – it is super yummy. This whole dinner is so easy and quick (as long as you cook the rice beforehand)… and a big pleaser here at our house! You can use your favorite veggies or whatever you have on hand that sounds good. Sometimes I add a couple eggs scrambled too. Here is the basic recipe that we like.. it is super tasty!

Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice

printable recipe here
2 cups uncooked brown rice (4-5 cups cooked)
2 Tb olive oil
1 large chicken breast, finely sliced (about 1 lb)
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1-2 cups sugar snap peas, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
Cook rice as directed on package. (Of course you can use white rice but the brown tastes delicious and is so much healthier that is what I usually use.) Over med-high heat, stir fry the chicken in 1 Tb olive oil until fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Add the other 1 Tb olive oil and saute green onions and carrots over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir in peas, rice and chicken. Pour in the teriyaki sauce and stir to distribute evenly. Cook another few minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
* other veggies I like are cabbage (2 cups finely sliced), peas, and red pepper. I don’t use all of them every time though – it’s a little too much for me.

    What brand of brown rice do you use? We love PF Changs brown rice ~ but don't know how to find something similar!

    hi Carrie, I haven't eaten at PF Changs in forever so I don't know what kind they have… but I really like the organic short grain brown rice that is sold at Costco. The brand is Lundberg. I used to buy just the regular brown rice at the grocery store and it's ok but you have to pick out some hulls (or shells or whatever!) and it's much chewier. The short grain is delicious! Anyway, let me know if you try it and how you like it! :) Brittany

    We made last night Britt and it was another awesome recipe! It's healthy and delicious. We will make this one a bunch at our house.

    I tried this a month or so ago, and it was great! I need to make it again, though, because I didn't have green onions last time (realized it too late), so I want to make it again the 'right' way! :) Thanks so much for sharing!
