Chicken, rice, soy sauce and shredded egg stir fried together. This is a very simple recipe. It is easy, but tasty! Note: Never use rice that you have just cooked.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this came out just as good as the fried rice I get at my favorite local Thai restaurant. I followed the recipe in terms of ingredients but here are a few extra things I did: I pounded my chicken breasts flat cut them up into strips and quickly stir fried them in a little olive oil and just a pinch of salt. Once they were almost cooked through I splashed on a little bit of soy sauce and set them aside. I cooked my sliced onions in the butter (instead of the eggs. I used PAM for those) Great flavor and gave the rice a little something too. When I combined all ingredients I also added some green onion to this dish red pepper and red pepper flakes. Also! Make sure your rice is cold when you cook this! GREAT recipe will use again and again. Thanks! Read More

Excellent easy recipe. I rinse the rice in cold water so I don't have to wait. I also decreased the pepper because it's got a little too much zip. Read More

Love this one! I used thawed frozen mixed vegis and added them after everything. Made for a very quick and easy recipe. I do recommend that you have everything chopped and ready to add before you actually start cooking as this cooks very quickly and leaves no time in between. My 3yo loves fried rice when we are out so this was an excellent dinner for her! And I could chop the vegis and chicken into bite sizes for her and not worry about her trying to stuff something too big into her mouth! And the rest of the family loves it just as well even my super picky husband (who seems to never eat anythign I make! LOL) Read More

This is one of those recipes you can easily tweek to your own tastes. I added peas and green onions at the end with the egg. Only used 1/2 of the pepper called for & used seasme oil instead of the veg. oil. Thought it made a very good side. Will make again! Read More

very tasty fried rice. I love the combination of flavors and it tastes even better with the seasonings all incorporated in the fried rice. I made some rice then cooled it down placed it in the refrigerator to chill. I had a lot of leftover rotisserie chicken from costco so I chopped that up in cubes. In a small bowl I beat 2 eggs with a little water and melted a little butter in a skillet. I placed the egg mixture in the pan and heated it up until the egg set. I flip it over for another minute then set it aside to cool. In the same skillet I added sesame oil heated it up added a half onion chopped and minced up. I let the onions cook down a bit before adding the next ingredients. I had a red bell pepper that I diced up and I added that then 1 garlic clove little grated ginger frozen peas and carrots. When the onions were almost translucent I added in the diced chicken and then rice. I broke up the chilled rice while it was heating up in the pan to combine everything. I then seasoned with black pepper a little salt added 1T of soy sauce and about 2T of oyster sauce to taste. I continued to stir to mix everything in well. Lastly I added in the eggs cut up in strips and then garnished with chopped green onions. The dish was colorful and a meal in itself with the chicken meat and veggies I added to the fried rice. A perfect tasty meal that I served along with "bacon-y bok choy" also from this website! Read More

This needed some alteration but turned out great. And bear in mind it's a lot of work and requires significant chopping. I added green onion and chopped ed pepper as well as teriyaki sauce. I also added some red pepper flakes for spice. And at the last minute I added some pineapple and pineapple juice and cashews for a special treat. My boyfriend loved it! It made a lot. Read More

This is a simple quick fried rice recipe that the whole family liked. I omitted the chicken and added shrimp and frozen peas. Used it as a side dish to sweet and sour chicken. I will definitely use this one again! Read More
