1 tablespoon sunflower oil
4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons garlic butter, plus more to taste
3 eggs
1 cup onions, diced

How to Make Benihana's Chicken Fried Rice

Step-by-Step

  • 1Add the safflower oil to a skillet and set over medium heat. Meanwhile, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken (stirring occasionally) until lightly-browned, firm, and opaque throughout. Add the garlic butter and stir to coat the chicken. Set aside.
  • 2Using the same pan, cook the onions, carrots and green onions until softened. Set aside.
  • 3Wipe out the pan, then scramble the eggs (season the raw egg with salt and pepper to taste). Add the rice, soy sauce, sesame seeds, chicken, onions, carrots and green onion to the pan and cook until the rice is warm and browned. Serve hot.
