Do you Cook Rice before Frying it?
I find that it’s best to use leftover rice or 1 day old rice for this recipe. Make sure that the rice is cold as it’s easier to sauté on the grill when it’s cold.
Here are some easy recipes to make White Rice or Brown Rice.

Blackstone Tools you Need:
Recipe Substitutions and Additions:
- Change the Rice – You can use brown rice, cauliflower rice or jasmine rice instead.
- Use Different Vegetables – You can add in mushrooms, snow peas, broccoli, bell peppers and water chestnuts. Fresh vegetables are also a good addition if you do not want to use frozen.
- Add in Nuts – Add in chopped peanuts or cashews for some crunch. We also like adding in toasted sesame seeds.

- Remove the chicken – You can also eat this fried rice without any chicken. It will taste amazing.

How to Store Leftovers:
Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. We love to store in individual containers for a quick lunch the next day.
How to Reheat:
Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice reheats easily in the microwave. When storing, I like to put leftovers in an easy microwave safe dish to quickly reheat.
Heat in 30 second intervals and then stir. This makes sure that there are no hot spots in the rice. Once heated, serve and enjoy.
