    NanuqsMom's Note:

    This recipe comes from Cooking Light, September 2005 and is without a doubt the best fried rice I have ever tasted. Not only great tasting but very easy to make as well. I have modified the original recipe slightly to reflect our preferences for oil, meat, veggies etc. The original recipe calls for shredded lettuce as an ingredient however I have never tried it this way. I will list it as an optional ingredient. The sesame oil is the secret ingredient as far as I am concerned!! Don't be shy, give it a try!!

      Good stuff! I didn't add any pork, but added a little turkey stock when making the rice. I used ghee instead of olive oil and didn't have more than 1/4 cup of green onion on hand. Came out awesome! Thank you for this keeper.

      This is a delightful fried rice. I used deli chicken because that's what I had on had. I can't wait to make this flavorful fried rice again. Thanks so much for sharing it, NanuqsMom!!!!! And thanks again for trying one of my recipes (Easy Breakfast Casserole).
