This fried rice is one of the most ordered dish in restaurants during dinner service. The secret in perfect Fried rice is getting the rice cooked correctly and the rice should not be sticking to one another. It is a combination of crisp cut vegetables, scrambled eggs and small pieces of fried chicken.Since we have cut the chicken into bite sized pieces we can enjoy a piece of chicken in every bite. You can discard chicken and make it egg Fried Rice.

Again in the same pan heat oil and add the veggies- Carrots, Cabbage, Beans and cook until the veggies are 80-90% cooked do not overcook the vegetables we still need to retain some texture of the veggies. Then add required salt, chili sauce, Soy sauce and mix it again.
