My favorite Chinese restaurant closed down and I mourned for two months. Loving Chinese food as I do, I came up with the following recipe. I use Basmati rice but you can use any type that you like. Enjoy!
prep time15 Min
cook time20 Min
Ingredients For chinese fried rice
sweet onion, finely chopped
cooking oil, divided
frozen green peas
cooked diced carrots
chicken or shrimp
cold cooked rice (i use basmati rice)
plus 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
plus 1 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
bean sprouts, drained well
salt and pepper to taste, although you might not want to use salt because of the soy sauce
How To Make chinese fried rice
Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium heat. Add in the eggs and scramble for a few minutes, until they are cooked through. Use a spoon or fork to break the eggs into small pieces. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium high heat. Add in the diced onion and cook for a few minutes, until the onions are tender and translucent.
Add a bit more oil to the skillet (if needed) and cook the chicken or shrimp with garlic powder until just done. Do not overcook. Remove from skillet.
To the skillet, add in cold cooked rice and the rest of the ingredients. Stir to incorporate. When everything is heated through, remove the fried rice from the heat and serve immediately.
