Check out our recipe for making Ninja Foodi Chicken Teriyaki Rice! Not only does it taste awesome, but it’s all made in just one pot!
I’ve always loved the chicken teriyaki that you get from the mall food courts, ever since I was a teenager. I still get a craving for it every now and then but don’t find myself at the food court quite as often. So, last week I decided to give it a go and make my own. There’s not a whole lot of bells and whistles to this recipe. And, yes, the sauce is pre-made. You can make your own….but it’s so easy to use the premade kind. Everything cooks all in one pot and it’s super quick to make. My family loved it. I hope yours does too!
Tips for making Ninja Foodi Chicken Teriyaki Rice
Technically, yes. You should wash your rice to remove extra starch that is on it. The extra starch tends to make the rice come out a bit gummy with the grains stuck together. However, I will say that I don’t wash my rice before cooking it. The result of stovetop rice is usually gummy and sticky. But, the rice that is cooked in the Ninja Foodi did not come out sticky at all and I did not wash it.
Absolutely! I would recommend waiting until the rice has cooled completely and then put it in an airtight container or a freezer bag. Do not overfill or stuff the rice in. To keep the rice nice and fluffy, it needs a little room to breathe, so to speak. Be sure to portion the rice out before packaging. If you pack 4 cups of rice together but will only be using 1 cup, it will be quite difficult to separate after it has been frozen. When you are ready to eat the frozen rice, simply put it in the microwave-safe container and add a tablespoon or two of water, cover, and heat for 1 minute. Based on the amount of rice that you are thawing, you may need to add an additional minute or two.
Yes, you can. Depending on what type of vegetables you will be adding will determine when to add them. If you are adding vegetables that cook very quickly like broccoli, or peas, you can add them at the end when you are stirring in the soy and teriyaki sauces. They should cook to an al dente texture and be ready to eat at the same time that the sauce has been mixed in.. If you are adding vegetables that take longer to cook like green beans, peppers, or carrots, you should add those in when you add in the mushrooms. You will want to pressure cook these vegetables since they do take longer to cook.
Yes, you can. However, the flavor that the broth adds to the rice is a nice addition. You can substitute any type of broth or thin liquid that you would like. Do not use thick liquid, like gravy, as it will not absorb into the grains of rice as easily and may leave the rice undercooked or burnt to the bottom of the pot.
