I love fried rice, it’s so versatile, you can throw anything in – there really are no rules! This incarnation combines two of my favourite meals in one bowl: fried rice and chicken teriyaki. If you’re lazy you can use store bought teriyaki sauce but I recommend making your own – it’s so quick to do and tastes loads better. You can make teriyaki chicken (or beef and salmon) on its own from this recipe – leave your deboned chicken thighs whole (skin intact) and marinate for 30-60 minutes. Fry on a hot pan, skin side down, flip over when the skin is nice and golden. When almost cooked, remove and slice into 2 cm wide strips and pop back in the pan with the marinade. Bring the sauce to a boil and once it has thickened you are ready to serve with some steamed rice.
