Who doesn’t like chicken fried rice?!
Chicken fried rice is one of the menus that you can serve to anyone, any time!
My chicken fried rice recipe is healthier because I’m using brown jasmine rice- which tastes amazing and is so fluffy!!
Well, you can call me it’s not a healthy recipe,
It makes me feel so much better eating fried rice. 😉
If you prefer, you can definitely use regular jasmine rice, it works totally fine!
Quinoa is also a great substitute for the healthier version. I also love adding lots of veggies to my fried rice!
When you do a stir fry recipe at home, there is 2 key point.
#1 is to prep EVERYTHING before you heat the wok.
Chop up ALL the ingredients you are using. Measure and mix up ahead sauces you are using.
This helps the key point #2, which is to heat your wok over HIGHEST HEAT you can go with your stove.
Heat your wok until SMOKE. Do not be afraid of the smoke, that’s the temp you want for stir fry.
When you are cooking at high heat, the ingredients have to be “ready” to add in the wok and right next to you where you can grab them right away while you are cooking.
Stir fry’s success is up to the fire/high heat, so if you had to reduce heat while cooking, the flavor/end result is already going down…
This is the new wok I’m enjoying SO MUCH!
