This is one of the first Asian dishes I learned to cook and it is still one of my favourites. A friend of mine, who lived in Singapore for many years, always served his version of Nasi Goreng with a fried egg over the top and I think that is a nice addition.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frypan over high heat.
  2. Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion, garlic, ginger, coriander and pepper and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and cook for a few more minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, with cucumber slices on the side and a fried egg over the top.

Very quick and easy to prepare, and the taste was lovely--especially with the egg on top. I didn't have any shrimp on hand, but that didn't matter much. It was nice to just have the peppery flavor over rice. Thanks, Sackville!

This was sooo good and quick. I had to omit the oil because of DH's diet restrictions but it still worked fine. I used chicken stock to saute chicken etc. Thanks Sackville, I will be making this again.
