    dolliegyrl's Note:

    I created this recipe out of desperation last night when it was getting late and everyone was HUNGRY now, so I call it one of my Desperation Dinners! It is really pretty and tastes as good as something you order in a restaurant! It was very cheap to make. You buy the chicken on sale and boil it and shred it and put in freezer in baggies till you need it and it's all ready to use in recipes at last minute! You can get the canned water chestnuts for $1 or less on sale and keep on hand in pantry! Hope you like this as much as we do!

      This was the best fried rice I have ever made. Substituted green peas for color as we don't like green peppers (they take over the whole dish). Otherwise, I copied the recipe to the letter (maybe a bit more soy sauce)and it was delicious. This will be my go to fried rice recipe from now on. bc-mimi

      Great recipe, very easy to follow. This is actually the third time I've made this and each time everyone loves it! We leave out the water chestnuts & bell pepper and add in peas (picky eaters) but otherwise I follow everything perfectly and it's always fabulous! Thanks for the post! Update: Actually did three times the amount of everything and still cooked up beautifully! Took a few minutes longer but still fabulous! Thanks again!

      for your rice , you should try cubed carrots ,scrambled egg,1/4 cup of oyster sauce. add a few dashes of accent...you'll think you're at a hunan dynasty. my chinese friend gave me this hint. ENJOY!!
