Lately I’ve been craving Benihana because we recently went there with friends to celebrate a birthday. I had never been and was worried that I wouldn’t like the food. I was majorly wrong. I fell in love with chicken and steak fried rice. It was a heavenly blend of shocking new flavors and surprises to my taste buds.
So, to save some money in our pocket books I decided to attempt a recipe I had pinned. I then found several variations of recipes so I decided to combine what I liked from each of them and make my own.
First I cooked my rice in the Pampered Chef Micro Cooker and then set it aside.
Then, I chopped up the chicken into large bite size pieces (next time smaller) and sauteed them in some olive oil. All the recipes recommended sesame oil…but we didn’t have any. I may try sesame oil next time to see if it adds even more flavor.
Here’s the chicken….

Then I poured in about a cup of frozen mixed veggies. The bag we bought had green beans, carrots, peas, and corn. I also added about half of a chopped yellow onion. I let those veggies cook for about 2-3 minutes….
And then I dumped in two eggs I had whisked together….
