Chicken Fried Rice


Whether you are a home-maker or a office-goer doing a 9-to-5-job, an easy and hearty recipe is always a saviour at the end of  a long day.  My dear friend Sanchaita who has many a solutions for such week-night dinners happily agreed to share some with us in a series for simple-week-night recipes at Ma Niche...

With the Chinese New Year in mind I thought it would be perfect to start the series with her recipe for Chicken Fried Rice which tastes so much like the Chinese-take-out. Only this is better and healthier as there is no risk of added MSG... 


Now over to Sanchaita for her recipe...

Chicken Fried Rice 
By my friend Sanchaita Bose

Always keep some boneless chicken pieces in your pantry. These beauties come in handy  when you want to cook a meal up in a jiffy. I often make this recipe with leftover rice from last night when I am craving some yummy food without the energy to put in the effort. You can also use freshly made rice. Make sure the rice is not wet or sticky. Long grain rice works best. This recipe works well even without chicken...
