Grilled: Chicken Fried Rice to rule tailgates

Can there be anything easier than fried rice at a big gathering? There’s plenty of food to go around, plenty of flavor and takes only a few minutes to bring to life.

The fine folks at FireDisc Cookers sent over there latest release, the FireDisc Shallow. It’s the closest thing to a hibachi/wok in the portable grill realm, and performs quite well.

We put together our own version of Chicken Fried Rice, a classic approach to the Japanese hibachi fave. Don’t be shy to add any flavors you want to kick up the volume on this one, you can’t hurt it.
