How to make chicken fried rice

Chicken fried rice is the comfort food of Chinese cuisine. It has been around for a long time and is common in East, Southeast and South Asian cuisine. The bread is made from leftover fried rice that has dried out and may not be as good on its own, but it is still delicious. Adding oil and soy sauce, vegetables and meat makes the rice taste delicious. Chinese fried rice should be made in a wok over high heat, but we made ours in a cast skillet because it's common in home kitchens. This favorite version is easy to make and makes a perfect lunch or dinner. Don't want chicken? Make it with shrimp or go vegetarian and make it with pineapple! 


is the best rice to use?

You will often find fried rice made with medium or short grain rice. These types of rice are delicious and complement any meal. Brown rice is also a good alternative to hazelnuts if you don't want to eat white rice.

 Can I cook this dish?
Chicken Fried Rice is a great meal prep recipe. Chop your vegetables and cook your chicken the night before. It's also important to note that some of the best fried rice is day-old rice. Also prepare your rice a day or two ahead of time.

What else can I add or replace with rice?

 If you want to make your own version of chicken fried rice, you can add different ingredients. Broccoli florets, red onion, spinach, and even nuts like cashews or almonds will add variety to fried rice.

 Can I make it vegan?

Making this vegan is very easy. Instead of chicken, use seitan or tempeh. You won't notice the difference since it will be covered in all the sauces and mixes.
