Beginner Tips:

  • For the best results, use cooled, day-old rice. Freshly cooked rice can be too moist and may result in mushy fried rice.
  • Make sure to dice the chicken and vegetables into similar-sized pieces for even cooking.
  • Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms to customize your fried rice.
