Benihana Fried Rice

 The reason why this dish is so special is because of what goes into it. First, rice. Rice has the ability to make any food more filling and flavorful. Once you get a taste of Benihana fried rice, it becomes your favorite thing to order every time a go there. Next, chicken. The chicken must be cut up into bite-size pieces because anything bigger would not be fried at the same rate as the rest of the food. This fried rice recipe is an Asian-style dish with flavor from soy sauce and ginger root.


Benihana Fried Rice


Ingredients:

1 pound chicken breast, sliced into thin strips 

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into small pieces (about 1-inch) 

2 pounds lean pork loin, cut into small chunks 

1 large onion, chopped 

3 cups cooked white rice (about 1½ cups raw white rice) 

18 ounce can artichoke hearts in oil 

6 ounces of fresh baby spinach leaves 

4 ounces fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut diagonally in half 

2 green onions, chopped 

3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 

2 teaspoons garlic paste


Directions:

1. Combine chicken and pork in a large bowl. Coat with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat until it begins to smoke.

2. Add onion, spinach, and asparagus to skillet and sauté for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. 

3. Add artichoke hearts, baby spinach, and cilantro, mixing well to combine ingredients. 

4. Spread half of the mixture into a shallow baking dish or on a large tray that has been lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil (use half of the mixture in the pan). 

5. Place the chicken and pork mixture into a large bowl and pour the remaining sauce over the top. Toss with your hands to make sure all ingredients are coated with sauce. 

6. Spread chicken mixture into an even layer on a pan or another dish. 

7. Top with remaining rice mixture, pressing down to help ingredients stick together; sprinkle with green onion and cilantro, if desired. 

8. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 20 minutes or until rice is heated through and topping is lightly browned on top, about 5 minutes longer for fresh spinach or asparagus (if using) or about 10 minutes for cooked spinach (if using).
