How to Make Chicken Fried Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Place raw rice in 2-quart saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover rice. Wash rice by rubbing gently between fingers; drain. Repeat washing rice until water is clear (5 to 6 times). Drain. Add 1 cup water; heat to boiling. Cover tightly; reduce heat and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Cut chicken (or other meat/shellfish) into 1/4-inch pieces. Toss chicken, cornstarch, and dash of white pepper.
  3. Prepare eggs, green onions, and bean sprouts for cooking. Set aside, in separate bowls.
  4. Heat wok until 1 or 2 drops of water sizzle and dissipate when sprinkled in wok. Add 1 tablespoon oil; rotate wok to coat side. Add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist. Remove eggs from wok.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in wok, coating sides of wok. Add chicken and stir-fry until meat turns white. Add rice and stir-fry for 1 minute. Stir in soy sauce and a dash of white pepper. Add eggs, bean sprouts, then green onions, continuously moving food in the wok for about 30 seconds. Sprinkle with sesame oil, toss, and serve.
