"Chicken fried rice, just like they serve in the restaurants! A stir fry with chicken, rice, soy sauce and veggies like peas, carrots, celery and bell peppers. This is something my sister just sort of whipped up one day. It's very good!"

This is a good base recipe. However, with my in-laws being Chinese and owning a Chinese/Vietnamese Restaurant for a few years, I have picked up a few tips that I thought I would share with you. I cubed 3 uncooked chicken breast into little pieces and seasoned it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and a tablespoon of oyster sauce (found in the international aisle of your local supermarket--and don't worry, it doesn't taste like oysters). Heat up 2 TBS of butter with 1 TBS of sesame oil, then add 3 cloves of minced garlic with the chicken. Cooked until no longer pink, then I add about 4 sticks of thinly sliced Chinese sausage (found in asian markets). Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add 4 scrambled eggs to the meat. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add a 16oz bag of frozen peas/carrots mixture. I mix in about 7 cups of cooked Jasmine rice (must be cold). Add soy sauce (about 1/4 Cup) and stir fry until light golden brown. Stir in chopped green onions and sprinkle in black pepper to taste. Voila, authentic Chinese Fried Rice in about 15 mins. Hope this helps... ENJOY!

This is a good foundation for fried rice. Be SURE to use sesame oil - not regular oil - since that is one of the basic flavors of Chinese cooking. Add garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, and salt and pepper. Also - make sure that your rice is cooled before you mix it in, otherwise it will become a think, starchy mess. If you want a sweeter flavor, add some teriyaki or stir-fry sauce to taste. Use a wok! This is a great recipe to have fun with.

Lovely meal. Must use rice that has been fully chilled or it will clump together.`Also it needs some garlic and additional spices to give it that authentic chinese flavor.
