Rated as 4.35 out of 5 Stars

"Great side dish that doesn't take long to prepare and has lots of flavor. Don't cook the bacon too much; you don't want it to have a crunchy texture. This makes excellent leftovers!"

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir instant white rice into boiling water. Cook rice until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken in hot oil until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Fry bacon in a large wok or skillet over medium-high until hot and cooked through but not yet crunchy, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain fat from wok, reserving 1 to 2 tablespoons of drippings in the bottom of the wok. Cut bacon into small pieces.
  4. Return wok to medium-high heat and heat reserved bacon drippings. Combine rice, chicken, bacon, green onions, and soy sauce in the wok; cook and stir until evenly mixed and hot, 2 to 3 minutes.

I make this often for my husband, but usually we have this as a main dish rather than a side. I do add in a few extras, though: an egg (omelet-style, cut into small strips), 1 t. of curry powder...

After multiple changes everyone loved it. I couldn’t believe they didn’t add eggs or veggies so I did and everyone loved it.

Awesome! I added a little sesame oil.

This was a hit with my family who can tend to be very picky. We added some egg, cilantro and pineapple for more flavor. We will definitely be making this again.

Quick and easy to make. Very tasty. I added yellow peppers and peas to it so that we would have a few veggies with it.
