chicken and egg fried rice ....



Someone has been asking for more Chinese recipes and i don't make Chinese much . But my egg fried rice recipes are mostly with Chinese flavors . We love our egg fried rice a bit hot and lot many flavors in it . This one will please your senses too...It is a great sight on the table and the aroma makes you instantly hungry...

What i like the most in my egg fried rice is that i can always use healthy brown rice to make it . I like it more with brown rice actually.

ingredients...
(3 servings plus some leftover)
brown rice 1/2 cup
eggs 4
chicken , boneless thigh pieces 200 gm
spring onions 2 nos.
fresh red chillies 2 nos.
fresh green chillies 2 nos.
finely chopped ginger 2 tsp
finely chopped garlic 2 tsp
frshly milled black peppercorns 1 tsp or more
soy sauce 2 tsp or to taste
sunflower or any bland oil 2 tbsp
salt to taste
preparation...
Chop the spring onions keeping the white and green parts separate.
Hard boil 2 eggs , cool and peel the shell .
Cook the brown rice in a a pan or in microwave , the other preparations can be done while the rice cooks and the eggs boil.



Heat 2 tsp of oil , throw in a little chillies , ginger and garlic ( just to season the chicken) and add the chicken pieces along with salt n pepper . Cook while stirring the chicken . Take them out of the pan once cooked.





Break 2 eggs in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, green chillies and a bit of ginger. Whip lightly.
Slice the boiled eggs and dip them into the whipped and seasoned egg mixture . Now pour this eggs mixture into the pan with 2 tsp of hot oil and cook stirring carefully . The boiled egg slices do not fall apart because they have been dipped into raw egg mixture .





Take out the cooked eggs and keep them along with the cooked chicken pieces . They are to be added later in the fried rice. The rice should be cooked till now.



This is the time to add the remaining oil the the pan and throw in the remaining green and red chillies, ginger and garlic into the hot oil. Add the white parts of the spring onion first so it gets cooked a bit . The onions should just be sweating and not cooked through .

Add salt and pepper to the cooking mixture ( taking care to adjust the seasoning to all stages and ingredients) . Pour in the soy sauce too and mix well.

Add the cooked rice and chopped green parts of the spring onion . Add the fried eggs mixture and chicken pieces too. Mix everything well .


Serve immediately .

This is a special egg fried rice recipe and i make it when we feel like having everything in one single plate. The sliced boiled eggs are special because they look stunning in the finished dish and they taste great too as they are coated with the seasoned egg mixture .


A complete meal in a plate . No side dishes required and you would love cooking it . Just going through the different ingredients in successive steps doesn't make this recipe complex . Using chicken nuggets or cocktail sausages makes it even more quick but i prefer freshly cut chicken ( frozen is okay too) to any kind of packaged stuff.


The platter gets ready within 30-35 minutes . I uploaded so many pictures to entice you enough to try it once . The flavors will be comforting and the looks ... just killing.

Truly a killer recipe with brown rice...enjoy...
