My daughter first introduced me to this phenomenally easy Blackstone chicken fried rice recipe so that I could make my favorite teppanyaki restaurant dish at home. And I haven’t missed take-out since!

Rice is fried crispy with low fat chicken tenderloins, seasonal veggies, and eggs scrambled right on the grill. These are all cooked together and combined with soy sauce and sesame oil for those iconic savory umami flavors in every bite.

Note: You can use whatever hearty and seasonal diced veggies you like! Some of our favorites are yellow squash and zucchini, sliced mushrooms, broccoli, snap peas, and slivered carrots.

Frozen vegetables also work great. There is no need to thaw first – just add them to the Blackstone griddle frozen and cook for a few minutes extra to make they’re heated throughout.

If you have whole chicken breasts, simply slice them into strips to make this recipe. Cut the boneless and skinless breasts crosswise into 1 1/2 to 2-inch pieces like tenderloins.

Fried Rice Recipe Tips

Cook, cool, and refrigerate rice a day in advance. This helps the rice grains to dry a bit, which creates the best flavor and super nice texture once it’s fried on the hibachi.

The Instant Pot with cooked rice

Pro tip: Make 2-3 batches of rice at a time when cooking, so you have a portion to enjoy the same day and can put some up for later use. Let the rice cool to room temperature before freezing or refrigerating in airtight containers. This way you always have what you need on hand whenever a recipe includes rice!

How to Make Chicken Fried Rice On A Blackstone Griddle

Preheat the griddle to high heat. Cut bacon into bite-size pieces. Turn the flat top griddle down to medium heat, and add the bacon. Cook until bacon is about halfway done.

Add vegetables and onion to the bacon. Season with garlic powder.

Add sesame oil and chicken tenderloin strips. Continue cooking until the chicken is lightly golden, vegetables softened, and bacon is cooked through. If you prefer your chicken bite-sized, then pull it from the griddle and chop it before returning it to the fried rice.

Create a well in the middle of the bacon and vegetables, and let the butter melt. Once the butter is melted, add the rice breaking it up in the butter.

Stir rice and vegetables together, and coconut aminos or soy sauce until rice is lightly colored or to your taste.  

Break eggs onto an open area of the Blackstone griddle and stir to scramble. Use a flat spatula to cut the eggs into bite-sized pieces and stir them in with the rice.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Equipment

  • flat top griddle like Blackstone

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces (1/2 pound) bacon (feel free to add more, we do!)
  • 3 cups chopped vegetables (we use a variety of broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini, slivered carrots, mushrooms, snap peas, or whatever is in season)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins (chicken strips) (can substitute 2 chicken breasts cut into strips, see notes below)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups white rice, cooked and cooled (if time allows, refrigerate rice for 1-2 hours, see notes below)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or Coconut aminos
  • 3 large eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat the griddle to high heat. While the griddle is heating, cut bacon into bite-size pieces. Turn the flat top grill down to medium and add bacon. Cook until bacon is about halfway done.
  • Add the cut vegetables and onion to the bacon. Season with garlic powder. Add sesame oil and chicken tenderloin strips. Continue cooking until the chicken is lightly golden, vegetables softened, and bacon is cooked through. If you prefer your chicken bite-sized, then pull it from the griddle and chop it before returning it to the fried rice.
  • Create a well in the middle of the bacon and vegetables, and add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the rice breaking it up in the butter. Stir rice and vegetables together, and coconut aminos or soy sauce until rice is lightly colored or to your taste.  
  • Break eggs onto an open area of the Blackstone griddle and stir to scramble. Use a flat spatula to cut the eggs into bite-sized pieces and stir them in with the rice.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.

Notes

It has been my experience that the colder the rice is, the more favorable hibachi fried rice it makes. So, if you have time, refrigerate your rice for 1-2 hours prior to cooking on your griddle.
Cut chicken breasts into strips: Cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts crosswise into 1 1/2 by 2 inch strips like chicken tenderloins.
