Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice

Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice

One of the BEST parts of being a griddle owner is making hibachi… like this recipe for Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice.

Get yourself some hibachi spatulas and you’ll be a fried rice making pro in no time 🙂

I have yet to learn any tricks like the onion volcano or successfully flipping food into people’s mouths, but I have mastered a darn good fried rice.

And I’ve had enough practice to where I don’t have my patio sprinkled with fried rice that accidently went flying 😉

Oh, and I make a homemade yum yum sauce that is spectacular!

How to Make Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice

My chicken of choice is boneless skinless chicken thighs.

Chicken breasts can for sure be substituted, but I like the flavor of the thighs.

Cut the chicken in bite size pieces and place them in a gallon size plastic bag.

Then add some soy sauce, garlic paste, and ginger paste.

Minced garlic and ginger can be used too, but I am a sucker for these convenient stir in pastes.

Massage the bag until the chicken is evenly coated.

And marinate the chicken in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Also, plan ahead and cook the rice so it has time to cool.

Cooled rice will give a better, more hibachi-like texture as it cooks.

I have 6 cups of cooked and cooled Jasmine rice total.

I have found that putting all ingredients on a tray works best when cooking outside.

Easily carry everything out at once, and also use the same tray to bring the fried rice back inside 🙂

rice ingredients

Preheat the griddle to medium high for several minutes.

Then add some sesame or vegetable oil and the rice, a diced onion, and three eggs.

Cook this for a few minutes, and flip and mix together with hibachi spatulas.

Then add a bag of frozen peas and carrots.

You can thaw them first if you have time, or they would be just fine if still frozen.

Cook this another minute or so.

Then add the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, butter, and sesame seeds.

Cook this for a few minutes, using those hibachi spatulas to flip and mix.

I find that spreading it in a thin layer and pressing down with the spatulas makes for a great crispy rice texture.

During the last few minutes, move the rice to one side of the griddle to make room for the seasoned chicken.

Cook the chicken by itself and then mix everyone together 🙂

Once the rice is cooked to your liking, use the spatulas to put the rice back onto the tray that you used to carry everything out.

Serve Blackstone Hibachi Fried Rice with homemade (or store bought) yum yum sauce!

I made my own sauce by combining 3/4 cup mayo, 3 tablespoons ketchup, a tablespoon sugar, and a teaspoon each garlic powder and paprika.

It’s a little sweeter and tangier than the sauce at our hibachi restaurant, you can add less ketchup and sugar if you prefer a more traditional yum yum sauce.
