Kim’s Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice

 

I seriously make this at least once a week in our house. We love it. Of course it isn’t the same as the yummy Japanese Hibachi restaurants…but nothing ever is. And the best part….it is insanely easy to make and pretty inexpensive!! All of the sauces can be bought in a traditional grocery store, I got them all in the international section at Food Lion. I’m sorry I don’t really have measurements, I just dump shit in and go with it…which is honestly how the best meals are made anyway.

First…marinate your chicken breast in teriyaki sauce for a few hours (or even the night before), I use this kind..

Meanwhile, pour your frozen shrimp into a bowl with cool water. I buy a bag of already cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp from the freezer section at Food Lion. I can usually catch a big bag of it on sale for $8.99. A big bag usually equals 2-3 batches too! Once the shrimp is thawed out I drain the water out and pull the tails off and put it back in the same bowl and pour some teriyaki sauce on top to marinate for a little bit.

Next…make the white rice. I just dump a bunch on the pot and pour water in and I use the old “fingertip measuring” (that sounds dirty). You could also use a rice cooker, but I don’t have one so whatever.

Just the tip!

Back to the meat…in the winter I just cook it in the house on a grill pan, any other time I take it outside to the grill in order to cut down on the smell in my tiny house. Once it’s cooked, just cut it into a bunch of bite size pieces like this:

Now that most of the ingredients are prepped we can start frying…  Pour some vegetable oil in a pan and start cooking some cut up onions. Add some frozen peas and carrots (it’s up to you how much of these things you like in your fried rice…I love cooked onions so I use a whole onion in mine).  Once they’re mostly cooked I slide them to the side of the pan and add the scrambled eggs (2).

Next add the already cooked rice (here I used 2 cups of dry rice which equals about 4 cups of cooked rice) and a big ole hunk of butter (I use unsalted since its healthy lol)

Next I add a little bit of Sesame Seed Oil to add some more flavor…go light on this oil because it is very potent and too much of it is a bad idea. You can always add more later on if it isn’t enough for you.

Once the butter is mostly melted I add some shakes of this lite Soy sauce… (again there is no rhyme or reason in making this)

Next I dump in the cut up cooked chicken and the cooked shrimp that has been marinating…I also add in some of the teriyaki sauce that I marinated them in…

Cover and let it cook for a few minutes so the shrimp heats up. And VOILA!!! Yumsies. Also I highly recommend adding some Yum Yum sauce once you put it in your bowl…
