Recipe Notes & Tips

  • You can take this hibachi chicken dinner a step further by turning the white rice into fried rice with peas, carrots, and fried scrambled eggs.
  • To make this dish lighter and grain-free, you can use cauliflower rice.
  • Cut the chicken cubes as close to the same size as possible to ensure even cooking.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan as soon as it’s finished cooking so it doesn’t dry out.
  • For a saucier dish, double the sauce recipe.
  • Make this with a different protein. Try shrimp or lean beef.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Consider using precooked microwavable rice if pressed for time or cook the rice ahead to reduce the cooking time.
  • We served with Jasmine rice but you can serve with basmati or for a low carb option use Cauliflower rice. Not sure how to make it? Check out this Cauliflower rice recipe

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hibachi Chicken?

Hibachi means “fire bowl” and refers to cooking over very high heat. In hibachi restaurants, this is often done on a flat surface at your table. Hibachi chicken just means chicken cooked in this style and it’s easy to duplicate at home with a large skillet!

How to store Hibachi Chicken?

You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. We like to store them in individual serving containers for lunch meal prep. Just pop in the microwave for a few minutes and lunch is ready! You can also reheat on the stove.

Can I freeze Hibachi Chicken?

You can freeze these chicken bowls, though we recommend freezing the rice separately. The vegetables and chicken can be frozen for up to 3 months, while the rice will last up to 6 months. For best results, defrost in the fridge the night before and reheat on the stove or microwave.

    This was great, tasted just like a hibachi restaurant only way less greasy. We did this as a filling for lettuce cups to cut back on rice. It was delicious!!
