This is a good side for an Asian dish, or it can even be a main dish with chicken added and served with egg rolls on the side. This isn’t the most amazing or specific fried rice recipe, but I haven’t found a better one yet of the recipes I’ve tried. As soon as I find a better one, I’ll update. I have found that it’s better when you add chicken flavoring, like broth or Members Mark Chicken Base.
If you’re making it gluten free, make sure to use gluten free soy sauce or tamari.
To make it a main dish, just add a few chicken breasts, cubed and cooked.
- 4 c. cold cooked Rice (or prepared Minute Rice- 2 c. Rice, 2 c. Water)
- Vegetable Oil
- 2-4 Eggs
- 1 Onion, chopped
- Ham Slices, cut in small squares
- Soy Sauce (or gluten free soy sauce/tamari)
- Members Mark Chicken Base
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Green Onion, sliced to top (optional)
Most recipes say fried rice is best with cold cooked rice. In frying pan, heat oil and scramble eggs, then set aside in a bowl. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in the pan, cook onion, then add rice and ham. Add soy sauce, chicken base, salt, and pepper to taste. You can even add some frozen corn or peas if desired. Garnish with green onion as desired.
