My family favorite Meal. back when i was young. my mom would buy a whole chicken. we knew what we were having for dinner. she would cut it all up (she used all of it).. Mom would fry all of it (she used Crisco shortening) then remove it from the skillet. Mom then added just a touch more of shortening. this was to fried the rice to a golden brown. i loved watching my mom cook. she added lots of love. grounded all the spices fresh. the whole house smelled great. We all sat at the table together. we would talk about our day. those were great times. my recipe is a little simpler an healthier hope
