Allyson, can you post your recipe for teriyaki chicken? Everyone here is tired of the recipe I've been using.

What are cow pies?

Cow pies are ground beef mixed with spices, onions and minute rice. Then made into patties, browned, topped with cream of mushroom soup and baked. It's a dish dh loves that I rarely make since we don't use cream soups much anymore.

For the terriyaki chicken, I just have some boneless skinless chicken tenders I'm going to marinate and then grill.

That sounds amazing...could you use regular rice instead? Maybe pre-cook it a bit?

I've never tried it but I did wonder the same thing. I actually keep having to bump this back because I keep forgetting to buy minute rice because I never use it anymore.

One or two day left over rice would probably work better. My freshly cooked rice is usually moist and sticky, but the left over rice is usually a bit dryer. I believe Minute Rice is basically pre-cooked rice that has been dryed.
