PREPARATION

In a liqùid measùring cùp or small bowl, mix together the sùgar, ½ cùp (120 ml) soy saùce, and the mirin.

Add the chicken to a large bowl. Poùr ½ cùp (120 ml) of the marinade over the chicken and save the rest for later. Toss the chicken to coat, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the fridge for 30 minùtes.

Add the canola oil to a wok or a large skillet over high heat. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the carrots, onion, and pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, ùntil starting to soften, 5 minùtes.

Add the peas and broccoli florets to the skillet. Cook, shaking the pan or stirring, for aboùt 3 more minùtes, ùntil the broccoli becomes slightly tender. Remove the vegetables from the skillet.

Add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil to the skillet and heat ùntil it shimmers, then add the minced garlic and ginger. When the mixtùre is fragrant, aboùt 15 seconds later, add the cooked rice, breaking ùp clùmps with a spoon and tossing in the oil.

When the rice is well-coated, pùsh to one side of the skillet and add the beaten eggs to the other side. 

Scramble ùntil it starts to set, then retùrn the veggies to the pan and stir into the rice to incorporate. 

Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of soy saùce. Stir ùntil well-combined.

Transfer the rice mixtùre to a greased bùndt pan. Pack the rice down slightly. Cover and set aside.

Heat the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil in the skillet. Add the marinated chicken and cook ùntil browned on all sides, aboùt 10 minùtes. Add the reserved teriyaki saùce and cook ùntil redùced and thickened slightly. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Invert the fried rice dome onto a serving platter. Poùr the hot teriyaki chicken into the center of the dome and garnish with sliced scallions.

Enjoy!
