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!



Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir instant white rice into boiling water. Cook rice until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 frozen peas or shelled edamame and red pepper flakes to taste. Sometimes I'll omit the egg and add drained pineapple to change it up. All around a great basic recipe with room for a little creativity and the leftovers are indeed amazing. Read More

We omitted the green onion as I'm the only one that will eat them here but otherwise followed the directions as instructed. We really enjoyed this my husband asked me to fix it again. I'm not sure how the rice was supposed to turn out (it was more greasy/mushy than anything) but had a really good flavor. Went great with a loaded baked potato (no we don't count calories like we should) and green beans! Read More

I almost used this recipe as a suggested making small changes and it worked. My sauce was Kikkoman's Teriyaki Baste and Glaze. I used a precooked chicken from Sam's. that I picked and pulled it clean after skin was removed and set it aside. I cooked 2 bags of boil in the bag Jassimine rice as directed and set aside. Chopped 1 Med yellow onion into small bits and set it aside. With the stove set on Med/High I fried 3/4 lb of bacon until it was just starting to brown and lifted it out and set it aside to drain reserving 1 tsp of the grease while discarding the rest. I then chopped the bacon into smaller pieces. Next I added the onion to the same wok stirring until it was soft and splashed it with teriyaki sauce to my taste. stirred in rice chopped bacon I microwaved a med. sized bag of mixed veggies and added it to the mix. I then added more teriyaki sauce and stirred it in a few seconds until the mixture was fully coated and hot Removed the wok from the stove and served on plates and added some salad Wonton salad strips to the tops of the serving for added crunch. Quick no seasoning except the teriyaki and easy. This is really good for halftime. Read More

Liked this recipe because i changed so much. I halved the qty's for three people and followed the method and it came out great. I thought i had bacon. I didn't. Thought i had green onion. I didn't. Instead i substituted chopped up kielbasa for bacon skipped any veggie altogether and added egg white for more low fat protein.! Read More

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. Read More
