Darren and I make fried rice pretty often - at least every other week. We have come up with a recipe that we both really like, and we both make. It's only gotten better since the Wongs gave us a wok as a wedding present. Thanks, Wong family!
For the fried rice, you will need:
2 c. uncooked rice (short grain)
4-6 strips thick cut bacon
1-2 c. chicken (I cheated this time and used rotisserie chicken from the store)
2-6 carrots, depending on size
8-12 mushrooms, depending on size
salt & pepper
Cook up the rice according to package directions. I use a rice cooker. I had never had one until I started dating Darren. He gave me one for Christmas a few years ago. Now I don't know how I ever lived without it! Thanks, Darren! <3 Also, I like to cook the rice a little in advance, maybe a couple of hours before I plan to make the rice, but I've even done it a few days in advance.
Go make yourself some fried rice!
