Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

chicken fried rice

Here I have for you another version of fried rice – chicken fried rice. This is a great way to make use of your leftover white rice. Make sure the rice you are using for this recipe is at least one day old, leftover rice that is even older than that would work even better.  This is much similar to the recipe I posted for Chinese Fried Rice with just a few changes and I’m going to give you a couple additional tips for making fried rice. Once again, ingredients such as soy sauce, garlic and oyster sauce should be added to your taste. In this version, I decided to add the oyster sauce in the mix and I felt it gave the fried rice great flavor. When adding the rice to the wok with the sauces, make sure the wok is heated enough to sufficiently fry the rice and absorb the flavors of the sauces into the rice. For the pieces of chicken, all I did was sauté them in oil and drain on paper towels.

Awesome recipe! This is the best chicken fried rice recipe that I have tried. I think the key ingredient here is the oyster sauce. This was the first time that I've cooked with it. For those of you who do not like oysters don't worry it tastes nothing like oysters and it doesn't taste fishy either. I think savory is a safe word to describe it. Anyways I made 2 changes: I only used 1/4 cup of soy (to try and reduce the sodium and it was still plenty salty) and I used 4 TBS of oyster sauce. I initially used the 2 and saw where the flavor was headed and used 2 more. Anyways, great recipe and thanks for posting!
