DIRECTIONS

  • Wash rice and cook with a couple pinches of salt. Then, put it on a plate and cover with saran wrap and allow to cool in fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Slice the chicken to the size of 3 quarter dollars put together, or cut to your preference. Partially freeze the meat to make meat easier to cut small.
  • Put the chicken in a small bowl. Add the cornstarch, garlic powder, 1/2 the salt, 1/2 the sugar, 1/2 the white pepper, 1/2 the MSG and 2 teaspoons of water. Mix by hand to coat the meat. This step keeps the meat juicy while cooking in hot oil.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons oil in your wok at 80% heat. Add the chicken and cook until white. Drain off the oil and set meat aside.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the wok. Heat to 60% heat and add the beaten egg. Allow the egg to cook before stirring it. Stirring the egg while it is setting will make the egg more fluffy, like scrambled eggs.
  • Turn the heat up to 80% and add the onion. Cook for 30 seconds and then add the cooled rice. Keep flipping or turning the rice over to heat it evenly in the pan for 1 minute.
  • Add the remaining salt, sugar, white pepper, and MSG. Continue turning the rice for another minute.
  • Add the chicken, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and peas and carrots. Continue turning and flipping for 3 minutes.
