This was just ok. I can't say I would make it again.

A wonderful and creative treatment of the contest ingredients for RSC #10. I planned this one ahead and had leftover rice cooked with broth and roasted chicken ready, so the dish came together in just minutes. My rendition used brown rice, my standard, and also included 1/2 cup chopped red pepper which both made sense and worked really well in the dish. The flavors were great, as promised, a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy (but not so spicy you couldn't share with tender tongued friends). I can't wait to enjoy the leftovers tomorrow. Thanks and good luck!

I loved the combination of flavors in this easy to make recipe! Sweet and spicy just the way I like it. I used frozen fajita strips for the cooked chicken... that gave it an extra zing as well. I didn't realize this was an RSC Entry til just know. Kudos for coming up with a great dish. I'll make it again for sure. ~V

This was quick and easy. It literally took minutes to do after the rice was cooked. However I found it not to be "fried" rice. The texture was off by not using oil. It was more rice in sauce in my opinion. The sauce held more sour notes than sweet for us. I would reduce the amount of vinegar a bit next time. I did like the other notes in the sauce... garlic, ginger, jalapeno, soy, and pineapple. I know I will be making this again some busy night. Thank you for your entry in RSC #10!

Good, but stickier than I would like. I think if I made it with brown rice, I might like it more. This was a recipe that DH 'said' he liked, but really didn't eat much, and didn't ask for more.
