Hey Everyone! I am going to give you the rundown on how to make delicious, simple, and healthy Chicken Fried Rice right in the privacy of your own home! Please consult a nutritionist to determine the actual healthiness of this recipe. (I consider all pork products healthy so my opinion may slightly differ from an actual medical professional.) Really, you can do it! Even if you are kitchenically challenged! Yes, that's right, I made that word up! With a few basic ingredients, a sharp, dangerous knife, a pan, and a few tips you will be cranking out restaurant quality rice just like the lady at Dragon City, Wok and Roll, Egg Roll Palace, or whatever your local place is called! What qualifies me to give you this information you ask? Well, I spent several years in Asia and I make this stuff for my kids all the time and have never had one single complaint! Anyone who is a parent recognizes the fact that that in itself is an accomplishment! Just remember my cooking is not an exact science! I don't claim to be Emeril and Gordon Ramsey would probably yell at me!

The Ingredients

Source

First let's take a look at what is needed:

  • 1 Large Boneless Chicken Breast
  • Salt
  • 11/2 uncooked Japanese white Rice
  • Pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • Chinese 5 Spice Powder
  • 2 raw eggs
  • Olive Oil
  • Soy Sauce
  • Sesame Seed Oil
  • 1 Large Flat fry pan
  • 1 Spatula
  • 2 quart Pan
  • Water
  • cutting board



Preparation

Step 1 - Prepare 1 1/2 cups of white rice according to the directions on the bag.You either make the rice right before you start or use my preferred time saving method of making the rice the day before and refrigerating it overnight. I saw many of the chefs in Japan pull the prepared rice out of the fridge. I'm sure there is a reason for this! I am not a professional chef but I feel they probably knew what they were doing!

Step 2 - Chop onion, cut chicken breast into small cubes. Or Thin slices, or just get mad and mangle it. It doesn't really matter as long as it is in small pieces. Ok..that was the dangerous part for you accident prone people. Crack raw eggs into a small bowl and whisk with fork. Or whisk with a whisk, stir energetically with a fork, Whatever u think is the appropriate treatment of the egg.

Step 3 - Heat pan to a medium/high heat and cover bottom of large fry pan with olive oil and about 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. I know, I know....I am not using a wok. Feel free!

Step 4 - Place chicken in pan, salt and pepper, and cook thoroughly until golden brown. Always ensure you use proper sanitation when preparing chicken and cook thoroughly! I really can't think of any situation where raw chicken is good! When the chicken is almost done...add the onions and saute until until a golden color. Now move everything else aside in the pan, add the eggs and scramble until well cooked.

Step 5 - Now slowly stir in cooked rice. Stir several minutes until eggs, chicken, and onion are mixed in and rice browns slightly.

Step 6 - Pepper rice to taste and generously sprinkle with Chinese 5 spice powder. Add about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, turn off heat, and mix well until all soy is absorbed. You can adjust the amount to taste. I like to keep my soy in a squeeze bottle for easy and even distribution across the rice.

Step 7 - You're done!! Serve and enjoy! Here is where you can get fancy if you want! Experiment with this base! I like to add crushed peanuts, chopped pineapples, pickled ginger, at the same time as the soy. Or go really crazy and add some chopped Korean kimchee for a spicy treat!

Step 8 - If available make kids clean up kitchen
