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!!
I had leftover chicken and leftover rice and I needed to use them, so I â€˜pluggedâ€™ them into your recipe. I did not have water chestnuts, so did not use them and I do not care for green bell pepper, so I used red bell pepper and I added some frozen peas at the very end â€“ just long enough to thaw them, but not long enough to cook them! This was so very good - thank you for posting - this will be part of my repertoire from now on (and a good reason to have leftover chicken and rice)!
My family loved this and almost fought over who got the last little bit. Due to some fussy eaters, I left out the green pepper and water chestnuts and used corn and a little jalapeno pepper and green onion instead. I added a sprinkle of garlic powder and used sesame oil(about a tsp) in place of the regular oil. I had leftover basmati rice in the fridge, so I did not follow the recipe for the rice. Thanks for the recipe.
wow, this was way easier than I thought it would be. We loved it. I added carrots, peas and mushrooms for a little more flavor variety. The only thing that I would really change about this recipe would be the amount of pepper. It calls for a lot of pepper, which kind of overpowers the other flavors. Next time I'll lighten that up a bit, otherwise great!
this was amazing!!! i have been looking for healthier recipes lately and this one fit perfectly. i did add diced carrots and sliced mushrooms and a couple more tsp of soy sauce at the end but it was soooooooo good!!! i will never make another fried rice after tasting this one ty for the great dinner
This is an amazing fried rice, and I have to look no further. This is the one I will make from now on. It couldn't be better. Change it up by adding peas and carrots and changing up the chicken to meats, seafood etc. This is a very forgiving recipe and will tolerate just about anything added without ruining the dish!
Excellent! Truly tastes like the real mccoy.
