chicken fried rice

November 3, 2009


My darling beloved Ella is sick.  She made a special request for dinner, and of course I had to comply.

I want chicken fried rice, she says.  Um, ok.  I have never made chicken fried rice before, and who knows where this craving comes from.  I blame the illness.


I really have to stop making such unattractive looking food.  But this mash-up of a recipe, frugally using left over rice and chicken was unanimously enjoyed by all members of the family, including the dog, who ate scraps of chicken skin.

Chicken Fried Rice
-adapted from

3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 bunch green onions, diced
1 cup leftover chicken, diced
8 baby carrots, diced small
1/2 red pepper, diced small
4 cups cold basamati rice
1/4 cup soya sauce
salt and pepper

In a large fry pan, heat 1 Tablespoon oil.  Add green onions and eggs and mix until the egg is all broken up and cooked.

Add rest of ingredients.  Stir over medium heat for about 10 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.
