Chicken Fried Rice Recipe
One of our Favorites

A Chicken Fried Rice Recipe is easy to like. It also heats up well as leftovers (better than a lot of other chinese dishes.)

Try this no-fail version. The only time I messed up this recipe was when I didn't pay attention to how much ginger I added. Take it from me, don't put in too much. The good news is that fresh ginger stays well in your refrigerator for quite awhile. There's a good chance you have these ingredients on hand and can whip up chicken fried rice on the spot.
