This is Shanghai-style fried rice and trust me, it's worth every mouth full! I first got this recipe from a Rose Cheng cookbook. I changed the prep of food to make it more "kitchen friendly". I also added the chicken broth because I found it a bit too dry. (UPDATE-2006) I now have added 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms to this as I like the moisture they give off.
