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.
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.

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.
Hey there! When you say dredge the meat, am I sprinkling the spice mix on it? I want to make sure I’m not doing the wrong thing here 😅
Hi Amber, in a plastic bag or a bowl combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Dredge chicken pieces and make sure they are well coated on all sides. Don’t worry choose any method that works for you. Enjoy this recipe!
I’m a little confused. You mix sauce and honey but it only says put teriyaki on it
Jeniffer, I have changed the wording, I meant the prepared teriyaki flavored sauce. “Add prepared sauce on top and toss to coat the chicken.” Thank you for pointing it out.
This Teriyaki Chicken Fried rice is so good! I used Coconut Secret Organic Teriyaki Sauce for a healthier yet still flavorful taste. Best paired with Vitasoy Melon Flavor Soy Drink
So glad you liked this recipe!
