I always loved my Chinese chicken or pork stir fry & when they send the extra white rice with your meal I started using that rice & make my own version of a healthier fried rice. Another great meal idea that I am blessed to have my grand children eating as a healthier alternative to eating foods high in salt & other unhealthy ingredients used in most stir fry cooking.
