Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice

What is it about fried rice that makes it soooo good? I think it’s the peas. And the green onions. Oh, and definitely the egg.Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice

Instead of the ‘usual’ cooked chicken, we grilled some marinated Teriyaki chicken that came out absolutely fantastic. It is the same marinade we used on some grilled Teriyaki pork kabobs the other night. It is definitely our favorite.
