How to Make Delicious Chicken Fried Rice

Simple Ways to Make Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken fried rice is a popular dish at Chinese restaurants in many countries. It is an excellent recipe to make at home, because you can gather leftovers, such as cold rice, eggs, chicken pieces and frozen or fresh vegetables to make a meal. Follow these instructions to make chicken fried rice.

Part1

Make the Rice

1

Use 4 cups (600g) of leftover white rice. It can be taken directly from the refrigerator to use in this fried rice recipe.

  • If you do not have leftover rice from a previous dinner, bring 2 cups (473ml) of water to a rolling boil. Add 2 cups (370g) of white basmati rice. Place the lid on the rice pot and turn the temperature to low. Allow it to simmer for 20 minutes. Check it near the end to make sure it does not stick. Place it on a cold burner for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Place the rice on a cookie sheet to cool until it is room temperature.
  • You can also use a rice cooker to quickly make the rice. Then, leave it on a cookie sheet in the kitchen or refrigerator to cool.

Cook the Chicken

Dice boneless, skinless chicken breasts into small pieces. Season them with salt and pepper.
2
Pour 2 to 3 tbsp. (30 to 44ml) of vegetable oil into a large frying pan or wok. Turn the burner on to medium or medium high heat. Swirl the vegetable oil so it covers the bottom of the pan.

Place the chicken in the frying pan. Sauté it until it is cooked all the way through. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon.

Whisk 3 large eggs in a small bowl.

Make a space in the frying pan to scramble the eggs. Put a few drops of oil on the pan if it looks dry.
