Spicy Soul Chicken Fried Rice

This classic dish is hit with a slight twist by the addition of the spicy soy glaze over the chicken to give it a sweet and salty flavor profile. Feel free to use shrimp, lobster, crawfish or pork in place of the chicken. Add the shellfish once you add the rice to the onions before adding the rice.
