Why This Recipe Is So Good

  • This hibachi chicken and fried rice recipe is rich, perfectly seasoned, and tastes like it was just made at your favorite Japanese restaurant. This the perfect way to make hibachi at home!
  • The mustard sauce is sweet and just a little spicy, and adds a flavorful kick to the chicken, veggies, and fried rice. You’ll want to eat it on top of everything!

Chef’s Tips

  • Fried rice was originally created as a way to use leftover old rice. To make hibachi rice, use rice you’ve made ahead of time instead of freshly cooked rice. For fried hibachi rice that tastes even more like restaurant-quality, use precooked rice bought at the grocery store.
  • If you are grain-free, you can easily substitute the rice with cauliflower rice.
  • Lightly toasting sesame seeds for the mustard sauce isn’t necessary, but it will enhance the flavor.

Equipment

  • 2 large skillets or woks
  • standard blender

Ingredients

For the Fried Rice

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • ½ cup white onion diced
  • 1 cup frozen vegetables
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups rice cooked, cool to the touch
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce

For the Hibachi Chicken

  • 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 pound chicken breast cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice fresh
  • salt
  • pepper

For the Hibachi Vegetables

  • 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 zucchini large, quartered and cut into 2" pieces
  • 1 white onion large, halved and cut into ½" pieces
  • 2 cups baby bella mushrooms about 8 ounces, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • salt
  • pepper

For the Mustard Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds preferably lightly toasted
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Instructions

For the Fried Rice

  • Heat 2 tablespoons avocado oil on medium high in a large skillet or wok. Add diced onion and frozen vegetables, and sauté until onions are almost translucent, about 3 minutes. Move the vegetables to the side of pan. Crack eggs into pan and scramble with a spatula until cooked through and fully scrambled.
  • Add 4 cups cooked rice and 4 tablespoons butter. Cook for 5 minutes and stir frequently. Add 4 tablespoons soy sauce and cook 1 additional minute. Pack fried rice firmly into bowls to keep hot.

For the Chicken and Vegetables (Made Simultaneously)

  • For the chicken: Heat 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil and 1 tablespoon avocado oil in same skillet or wok used for fried rice. Add chicken, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to skillet. Cook chicken until it is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Stir only once or twice so chicken will brown.
  • For the vegetables: In a separate large skillet or wok, heat 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil and 1 tablespoon avocado oil on medium high heat. Add sliced onion, baby bella mushrooms, zucchini, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, salt, and pepper to skillet. Sauté until vegetables are tender, about 6-8 minutes.

For the Mustard Sauce

  • Lightly toast sesame seeds if desired. (See note.) Blend sesame seeds, dry mustard, 2 teaspoons honey, 4 tablespoons soy sauce, half and half, hot water, and minced garlic in blender.

  • For the best fried rice: Do not cook rice immediately before making fried rice. Leftover or precooked rice from the store works best.
  • For mustard sauce: Lightly toasting sesame seeds will enhance the flavor, but it is not necessary. Mustard sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.
  • To make grain-free: Substitute rice with cauliflower rice.

    I didn’t make the rice, I just made the chicken, and it was freaking delicious! Super juicy, but crispy caramelized outside. I will be making this again! Thank you!5 stars

  2. What is a half cup “half and half” ?

    1. Megan | 40 Aprons Team Megan | 40 Aprons Team says:

      Half and half is a dairy product that’s half heavy cream and half whole milk. You’ll need ½ cup of that product for this recipe.

  3. We loved this. So much easier than I thought5 stars

      So glad you and the kiddos loved it! 🙂

  5. Excellent recipe and easy to follow, only suggestion would be to definitely add the soy sauce after your chicken has browned.. and I made the fried rice last
