Hibachi at Home

Hibachi at Home

Who doesn't love hibachi?  It's a dinner experience.  I always like to have an arsenal of delicious foods that I can make at home and this is by far one of the best 'copy cat' dinners out there.  Amazingly simple it can be whipped up during the week or weekend for a quick, yummy, and fun meal.

Collin and I have been to many hibachi restaurants where they cook in front of you.  My favorite part is always the onion volcano.  But I'm easily amused.  I wanted to be able to recreate this feast at home.  Now I have not mastered the flipping of knives or onion volcanos but it's on my to-do list.  Collin simply loves the fact that we can have delicious chicken hibachi at home while watching a movie on the couch.

Ingredients:

3-4 chicken breasts

2 zucchinis

1 onion

1-2 cups sliced mushrooms

2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil

6+ Tbsp soy sauce

lemon juice

salt and pepper 

Cut up your chicken, zucchini, and onion into similar sized pieces.  When slicing the onion cut the onion in half, place the cut side down on the cutting board, then slice into thin strips.  Heat two frying pans to medium heat and add 1 tbsp of vegetable or olive oil to each.  Add the chicken pieces into one frying pan.  Add 1 tbsp of butter, 1 tbsp of soy sauce, salt and pepper to the chicken.  Sauté until golden brown.  Continue to add a tbsp or so of soy sauce while it cooks.  Add the chopped zucchini and sliced onions to the second pan.  Add 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp soy sauce, salt and pepper to the vegetables.  Continue to add a tbsp or so of soy sauce while it cooks.  Stir often.

Once the chicken is done add the mushrooms to the pan and sauté until the mushrooms are tender and slightly browned.  Once the chicken and mushrooms are done, squeeze lemon juice on top.  Stir to combine. 

Serve up heaping portions of the chicken mixture alongside the vegetables.  You can serve white rice on the side as well.  Simply amazing copy cat recipe that anyone can make at home. 

I hope your weekend is filled with delicious foods!  Enjoy!
