It is such a simple chicken fried rice recipe to make that I do not even feel the need to elaborate. For this Chinese chicken fried rice recipe, you just need chicken breasts, green onions, eggs, and oil. That’s it. Some Chinese may like their chicken fried rice to be more pungent, but that’s not necessary. Just get the basic ingredients and make it as you usually would. As I said though, it can be modified to make it more pungent.

For this Chinese chicken fried rice recipe, you will need: chicken breasts, washed, cleaned, and cut into thin pieces, two teaspoons of soy sauce, half a cup of water, and one tablespoon of white vinegar. Also, you will need about three to four scoops of low-fat or gourmet rice flour to make sure your recipe comes outright. If you are using noodles, make sure you have drained them well. Do not throw away the dried noodles when you cook this Chinese chicken fried rice recipe.

In this Chinese chicken fried rice recipe, we will start with the chicken breast. You can slice them if you like (some people like to tear them apart) and place them on top of some steamed white rice. If noodles are being used, you can put the noodles in a large zip lock bag and set the bag on top of the cooked rice. Close the bag and let the bag soak in the rice and white vinegar mixture for ten minutes. Once the noodles are done soaking, remove them and set them aside.

Now we can move on to making the vegetable side of the recipe. To make the vegetables we will need a handful of mixed vegetables, such as a handful of broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and a handful of red peppers. You can use any variety of vegetables that you like; just make sure they are the same heights in height and color as the rice.

To create your own unique flavor you can add a little soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, and white pepper to the skillet. You will also want to add a generous amount of sesame seed, crushed garlic, or hot chili sauce to the mix. You will also want to make sure that the vegetable oil is very thin. Thin vegetable oil does not stick to the bottom of the skillet. Once all of the ingredients are added and mixed they should coat the bottom of the skillet evenly. You will then cover the entire skillet with the sauce and cover it until the ingredients are completely warm.

A Much Ado

When your recipe is complete, you will want to brown the chicken pieces in the sesame oil. To do this you should place the chicken in the skillet, cover for about 2 minutes, and flip. After this second flip, you will want to brown the other side of the chicken in the same manner. If you find that the underside of the piece is not browned well, you may want to brown the other side first and then continue to cook the other side.

When your chicken is cooked you will want to remove it from the skillet, rinse it under cold water, and then add the vegetables and any additional sauces you may have used. Mix the ingredients together and serve immediately. This meal is best served when it is warm but not hot. This makes the rice less bitter. If you serve it too soon after it has come to room temperature it can have an unpleasant taste.

Bottom Line

You will find that Chicken Fried Rice can be adjusted to different tastes by adding different types of seafood and vegetables. If you would like to add a spicy Thai sauce to the mix you can. The chicken fried rice recipe is one that is popular all over. It is easy to make and the whole family will love it. The only complaint may be that it takes time to prepare and that it needs to be cooked enough to fully incorporate the flavor into the rice.
