Chinese Fried Rice

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Seasoned Cook

BETTER than take-out!!! Flavors blend well and are delicious! The keys to success for this recipe is using COLD rice, otherwise it will be sticky. Also, for good flavor, sesame oil must be used. I have on occasion used either pork or chicken in this recipe which has been finely chopped. We could eat this dish every day!!!

This was very good. The recipe calls for salt but it doesn't say where to use it so I didn't add it. I didn't have rice cooked so cooked rice in the microwave and let it cool. I didn't have bouillon so I used chicken broth and used 1/4 cup of onion as I didn't have green onions. I also had shredded carrots so used about a cup of those. Liked this for dinner and cold.
