Baked "Fried" Rice
Ingredients1 h 10 m servings 361
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Place rice in a large baking dish. Drizzle in canola and sesame oils; toss to coat rice completely. Add garlic, green onions, bell peppers, carrots, peas, and ham. Season with salt. Stir until well combined.
- Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, and chile paste in a pot over high heat. Stir and bring to a boil. Pour on top of the rice and stir briefly. Cover top tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 32 minutes. Remove and let stand for 10 minutes. Uncover; fluff rice with a fork. Taste and adjust seasoning.
- Increase oven temperature to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Return to the oven until rice is browned and crusted, about 10 minutes.
- Chef's Note:
- I used a 11-1/2x8x2-1/2-inch pan, but your standard 9x12-inch casserole dish will work the same. This method will work no matter what you add in, as long as everything is chopped finely enough to cook through.
- Some sesame oils can be very strongly flavored, and if that's the kind you have, the amount I poured over the top of my egg could overpower the dish, so be careful.
- Use Chinese barbecue pork instead of ham if available.
- To brown the top, you can also place the cooked rice under the broiler for a few minutes.

Used water instead of broth - still came out good but I think it would have been better with the broth. Also sauteed the vegetables beforehand as other reviewers suggested.
