What Kind Of Rice For Egg Fried Rice?

I love fried rice. It's so easy to make at home. In order to make fried rice properly 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.
