What is Fried Rice?

Fried Rice is a dish of cooked rice that is cooked in a Wok, Frying Pan or a Griddle. It is mixed with chopped carrots and peas, scrambled egg, and either shrimp, chicken, or pork.

It can be served as a main dish or served as a side dish. Chicken Fried Rice is a family favorite. We love making this with our leftover rice and chicken or other types of meats.

Can you Fry Chicken on a Blackstone Grill?

Yes, you can fry chicken on the Blackstone. When we grill out chicken, we usually use skinless boneless chicken breast. We also like grilled out chicken thighs.

Keeping the chicken from getting dry and tough is important when grilling chicken. Cooking chicken is one of the easiest and fastest meat you can cook on the grill.

In about 15 minutes you can serve with your favorite sides and your meal is complete. Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure that your chicken cooked thoroughly.

    ANYTHING THE GIRLS COOK YOU WILL LOVE!!! Join now!! You will never I have loved every thing (WE have) we have ever made!!!

  2. Do you measure three cups of rice and cook or do you cook enough to make only three cups? I never seem to get my rice ratio!

    1. Raw rice will double once it is cooked. So if you need 3 cups cooked rice, then you would cook 1 1/2 cups of raw rice.

    My husband made this recipe on our Blackstone Griddle last night. We both loved it! Fun and easy to make! We didn’t have any green onion but next time will include! This makes a large dish that could serve 4 people. Will definitely be adding this recipe to our favorites!

  4. Changing the rice to cauliflower doesn’t make it gluten free. Rice has no gluten… HOWEVER….. SOY SAUCE is loaded with gluten and you HAVE to get gluten free soy sauce if you want this dish gluten free… I’ve made it before and it’s awesome!
