Chicken Egg Fried Rice

chicken egg fried rice

I love fried rice. It's so easy to make at home. But you have to make sure to use DAY OLD COLD white rice.

This particular recipe uses cooked chicken, but I have another recipe for beef fried rice. By "cooked chicken", I mean that you cook the chicken any way you want ahead of time. So boiled, steamed, roasted or baked as you prefer. For this serving, I use day old roasted chicken from a local supermarket.
