Authentic Chicken Fried Rice

ABOUT THE RECIPE 

An authentic Chinese fried rice recipe. The trick to make perfect fried rice is not to use hot rice, but cold, cooked rice. Be adventurous! A popular variation in Hong Kong is Spam - watch my brother Gok cook this when we appeared on ITV's This Morning. 

METHOD 

Boiling the Rice 
Wash Rice in warm water and drain, best to do this a couple of times and each time the water will become clearer. Cover with water approximately an inch above the top of the rice. Hard boil until the water has been absorbed and little craters appear in the top of the rice. Turn down to low heat and cover for 6 minutes. Switch off heat and leave the lid on the rice. If possible allow to cool for a few hours, even better cook rice the day before. 
 
Fried Rice 
In a non-stick deep sided pan fry onion in oil until soft, add garlic and chilli and cook for a further 2 minutes, add chicken and ensure its heated through completely, add remaining vegetables and add salt. 
 
Add egg and mix through, add rice in batches and stir through, ensure rice is reheated completely. Add a splash of Soy sauce and a tbsp of oyster sauce (to taste). Serve hot. 
 
Having cooked this dish a million and one times in the many restaurants I have worked in this recipe and method is pretty much bullet-proof. 
 
Make Plenty, Eat Lots and Enjoy - Yumm Yumm Yumm! 

INGREDIENTS 

2 Cups - Long Grain White Rice 
2 Cooked Chicken Breasts (Diced) 
1 Large Onion (Diced) 
1 Garlic Clove crushed or finely chopped 
1 Birds Eye Chilli (optional) 
1/2 Cup Peas/Sweetcorn 
2 eggs beaten 
1/2tsp Salt (or to taste) 
Soy Sauce 
Oyster sauce 
Oil (Veg or Olive) tbsp 

KWOKLYN'S COOKING TIPS 

#1 Use a heavy bottom pan which will retain the heat. 
 
#2 Prep all ingredients before you start to cook. 
 
#3 Always make a little too much as all of these recipes will have you going back for more.
