Chicken and Calamari Rice Bowl

barbara lentz


I had some frozen calamari that I needed to find something to do with it and I remembered when we use to have a Mongolian BBQ restaurant in town I loved to go there and get a stir fry rice bowl with chicken, calamari, veggies, and peanuts so I came up with this it was delicious.
