Recipe by Mona
I never could make fried rice, it always turned out sticky and nasty. Until one night when I couldn't sleep, I turned on the tv and watched this infomercial for cookware and they made fried rice. And what do you know, its a good recipe! Only thing good that ever came out of a infomercial, lol. Anyway my whole family loves it and have been asked for the recipe many times. If you have leftover chicken, toss it in too. I've also added hamburger and other veggies with good results too.

I found this to be an easy to prepare fried rice that went well with Vietnamese Spring Rolls that my wife made. I will, in the future, back off or even eliminate the celery or, perhaps better yet, chop it even finer (I had about 1/8" x 1/8" x 1/8" pieces this time). I think some chopped sugar pea pods would also go rather well with this dish. This dish will be welcome to return to my table.
