Recipe by Baby Kato

We love fried rice, this is a very nice thai inspired version. Hope that you will enjoy this tasty treat. For best results use really cold rice. Prep time does not include chilling overnight.

Loved the flavor of the dish. I added a little bit of broccoli florets, as I had some to use. Cilantro roots are not sold in my area, so I added a bunch of cilantro stems, which added some nice flavor. I used three chicken thighs (two of which were small) and needed pretty much all the rest of the ingredients to barely cover. It might not be enough if you use chicken breasts, but it is always hard to judge with chicken parts. This is more of a curry over fried rice then what we normally think of being fried rice, but very good.
