Chicken Fried Rice

I am a huge fan of Chinese food, particularly Chicken Fried Rice. So much so that I actually call Friday's 
*Fried Rice Friday*

They know me so well in my local Chinese, they know what I'm going to ask for as soon as they see me, on a Friday.

This can get a little expensive, so I looked around until I could find a recipe I really loved. Something that would genuinely replace my Friday craving.

The recipe I found was actually on a card, that was posted through the door, from some company trying to get me to order more recipes. I've had it years! There isn't even a name of a company that I can reference back to.

Any way, I thought I would share my version of it with you:

Chicken Fried Rice:


Ingredients:

225g Long grain Rice (I like to leave it cool, but do be careful if doing this. Rice should be cooled quickly, then kept cold til required)
Spray Oil
1 egg
Chinese stir fry oil (available in most supermarkets)
1 Garlic Clove
1 Onion
1tsp of Chilli powder
3 Salad Onions
200g of Chicken
1tbsp Soy Sauce
0.5tsp sugar

Method:

Cook Rice according to packet instructions and set aside.
Heat a small frying pan, spray with spray oil. Beat the egg and pour into pan, spread it around so it coats the pan thinly. Cook until lightly set and golden underneath. 
Cut the omelette in half. Cut half into strips and set aside, chop the other half.
Heat the oil in a wok. 
Add the garlic, onion and chilli powder and stir fry for 1 minute.
Add spring onions and continue to stir fry for another minute.
Add rice, chicken and chopped omelette, then stir fry for 4 minutes.
Add the Soy Sauce and sugar, mixing in well.
Put into a serving dish, using the strips of omelette for garnish.
You can add prawns if you like, simply replace 100g of the chicken with prawns. I personally detest them!

This is the tastiest, and simplest, fried rice recipe I have found. It's quick to put together and really tasty.
Although, I have to be honest, I play with the quantities a little. I've never been a rule follower! 

Do let me know if you try it!
