Bacon and Chicken Fried Rice

ljburrill

"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!"

  • Ready In

  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.

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

I made this recipe, I added peas and egg also! I served it with fresh chunked pineapple and a few chowmein noodles on top. It was a very good meal! I’ll make this again, we have leftovers yummy!

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

The only change I made was that I used regular long grain white rice, not minute rice. It turned out great.

This is Absolutely good will continue to cook it. I use low sodium soy sauce
