Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice

Why do you need day old rice for Blackstone chicken fried rice?

Using day-old rice in Blackstone chicken fried rice is recommended because it has a drier and firmer texture compared to freshly cooked rice. Freshly cooked rice tends to be moist and sticky, which can result in a clumpy and mushy fried rice. Day-old rice, on the other hand, has had time to lose some of its moisture, making it easier to separate and achieve the desired individual grains. This results in a better texture and allows the rice to absorb the flavors of the other ingredients more effectively. The firmer rice also prevents the dish from becoming too soggy when mixed with soy sauce and other seasonings.

Blackstone Chicken Fried Rice FAQ

Q1: Can I use freshly cooked rice?
A1: While it’s best to use day-old rice for the best texture, you can use freshly cooked rice if needed. Spread it out on a baking sheet and let it cool for a bit to reduce moisture before using.

Q2: What type of rice is best for fried rice?
A2: Long-grain rice, such as jasmine or basmati, works best for fried rice because it stays separate and doesn’t clump together. However, you can use any type of rice you prefer.

Q3: Can I add other vegetables?
A3: Yes, feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers, onions, or corn. Just make sure they are cut into small, uniform pieces for even cooking.

Q4: How can I make the dish vegetarian?
A4: You can make the dish vegetarian by omitting the chicken and adding more vegetables or tofu as a protein substitute.

Q5: What can I use instead of soy sauce?
A5: If you need a soy-free alternative, you can use coconut aminos. Tamari is another option that is gluten-free but still provides a similar flavor.

Q6: Can I make this dish spicy?
A6: Yes, you can add some heat by incorporating diced chilies, a splash of sriracha, or red pepper flakes to the recipe.

Q7: How do I store leftovers?
A7: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet or microwave until warmed through.

Q8: Can I freeze the fried rice?
A8: Yes, you can freeze fried rice. Place it in a freezer-safe container or bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

Q9: How do I prevent the rice from sticking to the griddle?
A9: Ensure your griddle is well-oiled and preheated before adding the rice. Also, avoid overcrowding the griddle, which can cause sticking.

Q10: Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?
A10: Yes, brown rice can be used as a healthier alternative. Just make sure it is cooked and cooled, similar to white rice, before using it in the recipe.

How do I Clean my Blackstone after making Chicken Fried Rice?

Cleaning your Blackstone griddle after cooking Blackstone chicken fried rice is essential to maintain its performance and longevity. First, allow the griddle to cool down slightly but remain warm. Use a scraper or spatula to remove any leftover food particles and grease. Once the debris is cleared, pour some water onto the griddle to loosen any stuck-on bits, using a griddle cleaning pad or a paper towel to scrub the surface gently. Avoid using soap, as it can strip the seasoning from the griddle. After thoroughly scrubbing, wipe the surface clean with paper towels. Finally, apply a thin layer of cooking oil to the griddle to re-season it, preventing rust and maintaining its non-stick surface. This routine will keep your griddle in excellent condition for future use.
