Copycat Benihana Chicken Fried Rice

Hi Guys!!! Happy Saturday!!! If you haven't been to the restaurant Benihana's yet, I highly recommend that you go. It's a little pricey but SO worth it!!! I unfortunately only get to go a couple of times a year but when I do, boy do I savior every moment!!! Their food is excellent and the show they put on while cooking your food right in front of you is AMAZING!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!! However, if you cannot afford going to Benihana's, then you can make Benihana's food right in your own kitchen!!!
