My family loving calls this Easy Teriyaki Chicken – Crack Chicken! It is incredibly tasty and very addictive. You will love this quick and easy dinner idea that tastes better than takeout.


Easy Teriyaki Fried Rice Dinner

You can make your own Fried Rice as well. Easy recipe below.

But, I love to CUT CORNERS whenever I can. And Costco always saves a day for me.

I always have this Japanese-Style Fried rice in my freezer for those lazy days when I don’t feel like cooking. It’s better than the fried rice you get at the takeout and I like to upscale it as you can see in the video by adding eggs and broccoli.

This fried rice mix comes with grilled chicken, but it doesn’t have much taste so you can easily mix it with Easy Teriyaki Chicken.

You can use Chicken Breast meat or Thigh meat in this recipe and I have used both as you can see.

Remember that you can make your own FRIED RICE and I often do as well, but when we decided to shoot a video, I had Costco’s fried rice on hand and thigh meat and wanted to show you that there are many variations on how easy it is to make a delicious meal in no time!

I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family does. I try to give you many detailed options so you can create meals that work for you and your family.


 
I’ve been asked what type of skillet I’m using in this video recipe. It is a Masterclass premium 12.5 low casserole pan that I bought a while back at either Marshalls or T.J. Maxx.
 
The reason I love, as you can see in the video, it uses very little oil to cook meals thanks to the superior nonstick double coating. It has a steel induction base and cast aluminum body, which spreads heat quickly and evenly.
