I already posted egg fried rice recipe and talked about a few things like each rice grain has to be separate and cooking the fried rice in high heat like that. So I don't want to bore you by repeating that all here. Just one thing, don't add tomato sauce too much for chicken fried rice. Increase the chilli sauce to make it tasty and spicy. Now let's see how to make it..

NOTES

You can add the oil used for frying chicken to make fried rice. It will give nice taste and flavor to the fried rice. If you don't want to use that fried oil, use fresh oil.

Since we are making fried rice in high heat, chop the vegetables into small pieces to cook quicker.

If you don't have enough time to marinate the chicken, don't worry. You can mix the spices with the chicken and fry it immediately.

Most of the people and many restaurants add cabbage to fried rice. We don't like cabbage in our fried rice that's why I didn't add it. If you want you can definitely add cabbage.
