Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 4 cups cold, cooked rice
  • 6 green (spring) onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish, optional
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
Directions

Beat eggs with a whisk in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat very little oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat and make an omelette using half the beaten eggs. Turn out onto a plate to cool (do not fold omelette). Repeat process with remaining beaten eggs. Place 1 omelette on top of the other, fold and coarsely chop. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, toss chicken strips with the sesame oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil over high heat in large frying pan or wok and stir-fry the prepared chicken strips until lightly golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until onion has softened. Add 2 tablespoons more vegetable oil and when hot, stir in the cooked rice and green onions, tossing and mixing thoroughly until very hot. Sprinkle with soy sauce and mix evenly. Remove from heat and stir in chopped cooked egg. If desired, garnish with additional sliced green onions.

Yummy, great recipe. I added carrots to mine, tasted better then what I normally can get where I live. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you for a great recipe! So easy! I've never made fried rice before and this recipe gave me the foundation for doing it. I used a diced, cooked chicken breast and added it after the onion and garlic and mushroom were cooked. Use whatever spices you like. It's the sesame oil and soy sauce that made this DEE-LICIOUS! I took half to the neighbors and they went crazy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was good, I added asian seasoning, fresh ginger, garlic and scallions. It was quite easy and tasty, my entire family had seconds! This is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was quite good. We used chopped sweet onions and added mushrooms, celery, and some carrots. Four of us ate it all. Next time I'll add peas too. Had a great time cooking it with my 17yr old daughter. She found the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe has no flavor and way too much oil! Very disappointed! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe! It was easy and tasted as good as our favorite chinese restaurants recipe! I added 1 cup of peas and carrots as my own variation, and I didn't have sesame oil, so I used some sesame seeds that I cooked with the chicken, and it came out so good everyone had seconds! Thanks Robert! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy to make and even without modifications, this recipe is as good as any Chinese restaurant fried rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe made me look like an Asian gourmet cook exemplar. In fact, I didn't change a thing, and it was SO good that my daughter claimed it could stand right up there against any of her favorite Chinese restaurants. I think that the sesame oil is the secret in putting this dish above the competition. I marinated the chicken strips for about an hour before frying it. A perfect, perfect dish which surprised even me, who preferred pork fried rice before this. Thank you, Robert Irvine. We love your shows. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made a couple of modifications to this recipe. If i had cooked as written it would have gotten one star. I used Kathy Cary recipe to marinade my 2 chicken breast.I only used 2 cups of rice. Anyone making this recipe need to use her recipe for the chicken awesome. I did as some of the previous reviewers did by adding veggies, more sesame oil and soy sauce. I also added ginger and garlic. The dish i prepared is a 5 star. Marinade a must try Asian chicken salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
