FRIED RICE. so typical

FRIED RICE. so typical,
it should not even be blogged about on here!
I wanted to keep my blog with recipes of meals that are more rare, more special.

However, the fried rice I made last night came out so pretty, and so good, that I couldn't resist blogging.

I mean.... how can you say 'no' to my bucket-full of fried rice?

Half-full bucket!

Zooooomed-in bucket!

Asian Chicken Fried Rice

- 2 cups rice (uncooked). Cook rice beforehand, let it cool.
- 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
- 3 sweet chinese sausages, cooked and cut into small cubes
- 1/2 cup of frozen mixed vegetables
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper (more or less depending on how much you like black pepper. or none at all!)
- 2-3 tbsp soy sauce (more or less, depending on how salty you want it).
- half small yellow onion, diced.
- seasame oil


1. Add sesame oil to skillet, and pour in eggs when the oil is hot.
2. Scramble the eggs and add in the salt.
3. When the eggs are scrambled, scoop them out of the skillet and set aside.
4. Add sesame oil to the skillet once again, and pour in onions when the oil is hot.
5. Saute onions until golden, then add in cubed chicken breast.
6. Saute and turn the chicken+onions until the chicken is no longer pink. Add in seasoned salt and turn some more.
7. Scoop out chicken+onions and set aside.
8. Pour cold rice into the skillet. Constantly turn the rice until the rice is thoroughly heated.
9. Add the scrambled eggs, chicken+onions, chinese sausages, and frozen vegetables into the rice.
10. Turn the rice until all the ingredients are thoroughly heated/cooked. Then add in the soy sauce.
11. Turn the rice mixture until the soy sauce is distributed evently. The rice should be a uniform light brown color (refer to my fried rice images above).
12. Taste test the fried rice. If it is the way you like it, then it's done!

*note* I did not do it for my dish, because I did not have any, but adding chopped green onions into the rice adds more flavor and fragrance into your fried rice.
