Chicken Fried Rice

52

Though fried rice is normally served with Chinese gravies, it is also delicious eaten on its own, especially a recipe like ours as it has both chicken and eggs. Fried rice is also a great way to utilize leftovers in the fridge.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ tsp red chili flakes
  • 100 gram chicken boneless, cut in strips
  • ½ cup white part on green onion
  • ½ cup carrot
  • ¼ cup capsicum
  • 2 teaspoons soya sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups gram cooked rice
  • Green chilies
  • ½ teaspoon chili sauce

Directions:

  1. Wash, soak and boil rice. The rice should preferably be day old, as fresh rice can turn out too soft and mushy for Chinese fried rice.
  2. Take two eggs in a small bowl, and add salt and white pepper. Whisk well.
  3. Heat oil in a small frying pan and cook the egg, whisking with a spoon to make scrambled eggs. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a wok, and add garlic and red chili flakes. Cook for about a minute.
  5. Add boneless chicken and saute for a few minutes till color changes from pink to white.
  6. Add onion, capsicum and carrots. Cook for about 2-3 minutes and add soya sauce, vinegar and salt.
  7. Add the cooked rice, and toss the rice with spices and vegetables. Cook for about five minutes so that the rice is warmed through.
  8. Add chili sauce, and adjust seasonings if required.
  9. Serve hot with Chicken Manchurian or chicken chili.
