This is a Bangkok street food style recipe which I snagged on a recent trip there. Serve and enjoy. Try a hollowed pineapple shell as a serving bowl.

Directions

  • Place bacon in a wok or large skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and reserve bacon drippings in the wok. Cook and stir shallots in bacon drippings over medium-high heat until fragrant and light brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Stir chicken into shallots and cook without stirring until browned on one side, 45 seconds to 1 minute; stir. Continue cooking until chicken is browned, about 1 minute. Add 2 teaspoons curry powder; stir until chicken is coated.

  • Make a well in the center of chicken and pour oil into center of the well; add egg yolks. Cook and stir egg yolks until set, 1 to 2 minutes. Add rice and stir, breaking up rice.

  • Mix chile pepper, cilantro, soy sauce, remaining 2 teaspoons curry powder, fish sauce, and sugar into rice mixture; add shrimp and cook until shrimp is cooked through and pink, about 2 minutes. Fold pineapple, green onions, and bacon into rice mixture.

Tips

Use fresh pineapple when available. Hollow out pineapple and serve it in the shell. Using day old cold rice from the fridge will work best. You can add most frozen vegetables to this for added goodness. It also works well with brown rice.

Tips: Use day old COLD rice and break it up with your hands before adding. Use light soy instead of regualr soy as per my oriinal recipe. For added fun toss in a cup of bean sprouts in the last minute. Read More

I just didn't like this at all. To much curry made it hot and the other flavors were lost. I would reduce the curry by 1/2 at least (you can always add more if you like) and I like curry. Anyway just didn't do it for me and I ended up making pizza instead such a waste of time and ingredients. It did look good and smelled good it just didn't taste good to me sorry about that. Read More

We have really come to love this meal! Like any good cook I've added my own twists as I've made it each time. I skip the shrimp since my wife isn't a big fan and double the chicken BUT... I use chicken thighs cut into small pieces and then marinate overnight in sweet soy sauce sesame oil and Sriracha chili paste. When it comes to the egg I like using duck eggs if I can find them and I also add broccoli diced red pepper and chopped cashews. Also always make the rice a day or two ahead and leave uncovered in a big bowl in your fridge. It will dry out and you then break it up with your hands before adding to the dish which makes much better fried rice. Super delicious! Read More

I left out the peppers and fish sauce (didn't have any on hand) and thought it was really good. My only advice is to prep all the ingredients before starting to cook. Thanks for the great recipe I'll be making this again! Read More

UPDATE: I am changing my review from 4 to 5. I made this again. In the interest of disclosure this time I did not use shrimp cilantro or the red Thai chili. The first time I increased the bacon amount but did not reduce the amount of bacon fat left over (which made it greasier). Also the first time I did not have my chicken thawed so I skipped that part. Anyway use S/P to taste (mandatory - or it can be a bit bland). Anyway if you follow the recipe (adjusting seasonings to taste) this will be AT LEAST as good as what you get at your favorite Thai restaurant. THANK YOU to eatvancity for the submission - 5 stars for sure. Read More

Yes this is amazing! My family gobbled it up. I have served this dish for several dinner parties and our guests have realllllly enjoyed this dish. This is going to be our Christmas dinner meal because our theme is going to be the tropics. Everyone will enjoy a virgin pina colada with there meal on a cold snowy day! Too fun and super bonus is your kitchen smells wonderful as this cooks. Tweak it as you wish with added veggies the basic recipe is a terrific jumping off point. Our kids have Christmas meals with several other families and it's always fun for them to enjoy something different when they come and celebrate at our home and this fits the ticket perfectly! Thanks a bunch it's a total winner! Read More

I have made this recipe multiple times now and I love it. My husband is Celiac so this recipe works really well for us since all I have to substitute is the soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce. I do a little tweaking in the times and the temperature at which I cook the meal but at the end its always turned out great! I always cook my rice in a rice cooker I never add as much water as the rice calls for (whether I am cooking stovetop or in a rice cooker) add a little bit of salt and oil and it makes the rice taste great and it has a nice texture to it I personally have never had to leave the rice overnight. Really a great curry fried rice recipe! Thank you for sharing! Read More
