INTRODUCTION:

I had my entire family over for chinese night.  It was a lot of work, but I wanted them to experience my famous chicken.  They absolutely loved it and agreed that it tasted straight from a restaurant.  I always serve this amazing fried rice with all of my chinese dishes.  It is easy and goes perfectly as a side.

I have always loved fried rice.  I could probably eat an entire bowl.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can add whatever you would like!  I have added bacon, chicken, and ham.  It is the perfect fried rice base and they say the secret ingredient to get the authentic chinese taste is sesame oil.  Whatever it may be it is fantastic!

WHAT IS IT?:

Fried rice is a dish of cooked rice that has been stir-fried in a wok or a frying pan and is usually mixed with other ingredients such as eggs, vegetables, and meat. It is often eaten by itself or as an accompaniment to another dish. Fried rice is a popular component of East and Southeast Asian cuisines. As a homemade dish, fried rice is typically made with leftover ingredients (including vegetables and/or meat) from other dishes, leading to countless variations. Being an economic hodgepodge, the practice is often done with fried noodles or pyttipanna as well
