This fried rice is just like you would order at your favorite Chinese restaurant.
I am not a huge leftover fan but fortunately my husband is. I don’t mind eating the same thing twice if I can disguise it in another form. Fried rice is one of those recipes that allows you to use up your leftovers but you don’t feel like you are eating leftovers!
Remember that yummy Chicken & Rice Soup. A great way to use up leftover rice and chicken and not feel like you are eating leftovers! Well, Fried Rice is another great way to use up that leftover rice and chicken or really any leftover meat. It works great with pork, ham or bacon too.
You can change it up with the type of vegetables you add in too. You can use what’s in your frig. I used a mixture of frozen carrots and peas and added in some onion too.
All you have to do is saute the vegetables until tender and then add in your meat.
My favorite part of the fried rice is the egg that is in it. Just scramble up a few eggs and throw them in too!
Of course you will need some rice too. I like my rice to be chilled so I use it right out of the refrigerator. If you are cooking rice specifically for this dish, not leftovers, try and let your rice chill a bit or at least come to room temperature. I find that it sticks much less if it isn’t warm or hot.
After I add in the rice I just add soy sauce basically to taste! This is one of those non-exact recipes. Just add in however much you like and how much tastes good. Taste as you go.

Some of my favorite kitchens I use to make Fried Rice:
REDMOND REAL SALT – this is my favorite, daily use salt. It’s unrefined, unprocessed, just the way nature made it!
5 QT. NON STICK FRYING PAN – this is my go to frying pan. The one I use more than any other. I love that it has a lid.
