Instructions

Preparation:

  1. Marinate the Protein: In separate bowls, marinate the chicken and shrimp with a mix of soy sauce, sesame oil and seasoning. Let them sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Prep the Veggies: Slice the zucchinis, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Keep them in a bowl ready to hit the griddle.
  3. Prep your rice: Chop green onions, sweet pepper and bring eggs to room temp

Cooking:

  1. Fire Up the Griddle: Preheat your Weber Slate Griddle to medium-high heat. Add a little vegetable oil and spread it around with a spatula.
  2. Cook the Chicken and Shrimp: Start by cooking the chicken pieces. Spread them out on the griddle and let them sear for about 4-5 minutes until they're cooked through and have a nice golden color. Remove and set aside. Next, cook the shrimp in the same manner, which should only take about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir-Fry the Veggies: Add the vegetable oil and sesame oil to the griddle. Toss on the sliced vegetables, stirring frequently. Add soy sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir-fry until they are tender but still crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Prepare the Fried Rice: Move the veggies to one side of the griddle. Add more oil to the empty side, then pour in the beaten eggs. Scramble the eggs until they are fully cooked, then mix them with the veggies. Add the cooked rice and soy sauce, tossing everything together. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Combine and Serve: Plate all the ingredients and top with yum yum sauce or spicy mayo if desired

Notes

I used leftover Chinese noddles for my noodles! Use premade yum yum sauce
