Tips & Variations

This dish was a winner in our household. In fact, my husband said it seemed lighter in flavor than traditional Chinese fried rice and he preferred it that way. I typically have all the ingredients on hand so it's a real winner. Made for CQ19.

I'm a huge fan of fried rice and my husband isn't so we rarely have it, but he LOVED this one, woohoo! What I particularly liked was the small bit of chicken broth , both in the eggs and the rice, and the fact that the soy sauce was added to the broth rather than directly into the dish, I felt this distributed it much better . Just to add that a couple of the listed ingredients, weren't mentioned in the directions, when it came to adding them in, but it wasn't hard to work out where to do it ;) absolutely loved this, made for Culinary Quest 2019, Fusion, FeedBags
