Learn how to make the perfect Chicken Fried Rice dish using our Mahatma® Long Grain and Jasmine Blend. Feed your body the best ingredients for the best results!
Prepare the rice according to package directions. Spread rice on a sheet pan to cool completely. If necessary, place in the fridge to cool quicker.
Heat the sesame oil in a large non-stick wok or skillet over high heat. Add the eggs and quickly scramble until eggs are soft-cooked. Remove egg, place it on a dish, and keep warm. Clean out the wok after finishing.
Add the remaining oil to the wok and stir-fry the chicken for 5 minutes. Add salt, garlic, and ginger. Continue to stir fry until the chicken is done, about 3 minutes.
Add the cooled rice and stir-fry until heated through. Add peas, carrots, green onions, soy sauce, and reserved egg. Sauté until all ingredients are well combined and heated through.
Hands down, this is the best recipe for Chicken Fried Rice! That’s a big claim you might be thinking, but no, we mean it. What’s our secret? Mahatma® has created a rice blend of Long Grain & Jasmine Rice that is perfect for making all of your favorite Fried Rice recipes using Authentic Grains from Pork Fried Rice to even Pad Thai Fried Rice. When cooked, the long grain rice granules remain separate which makes it easier for them to be stir-fried evenly and enhances the flavor, rather than clumping together like short-grain sticky rice.
For softer rice add ¼ cup more liquid of your choice whether it be broth or water. For firmer rice add ¼ cup less liquid. We recommend you make the rice the day before and store it until you are ready to use, or feel free to use leftovers. The more cooled down the rice the better.
This recipe can be a great way to get you and your entire family to eat your daily dose of vegetables! It’s a great excuse to use those peas and carrots you’ve got in the freezer and throw in other vegetables like finely chopped broccoli or corn. For best results, use slightly less rice and more veggies to make sure you are enjoying a tasty meal and getting the vegetables you need.
