This recipe came from a family friend and has been a "go to" weeknight meal since my husband and I were first married. Now our kids love it! I usually serve this with some fresh fruit and muffins.

I have been looking for that just right Fried Rice recipe and this is *it*. Wonderful blend of flavors. I did add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the rice for a little moisture. I also cook my rice in chicken stock. *Made for PAC spring 2009* Thanks !
