Recipe: Special Fried Rice
I'm back with another recipe that's completely idiot proof. This works perfectly as a side dish (team it with a steak or grilled chicken) or as a meal on its own. Either way, it's tasty.
What You Need
1/3 cup Peanut Oil (plus an extra tbsp)
3 Eggs, lightly beaten
2 Cloves of Garlic, chopped
1 tsp finely chopped Ginger
4 Spring Onions, 3 chopped, 1 sliced
300g Chicken Thigh Fillets, thinly sliced
100g Rindless Bacon, chopped
2 tbsp Dry Sherry
2 tsp White Sugar
1/4 cup Light Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
4 cups cooked Jasmine Rice
100g Green Beans, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Basil Leaves
What To Do
1) Heat 1 tbsp peanut oil in a wok or frying pan over high heat, add eggs and swirl quickly to coat. Cook for about 1 min, then slide omelette out of pan, chop roughly and set aside.
2) Heat remaining peanut oil and cook garlic, ginger and chopped onion over high heat for 1 min, until softened. Add chicken and stir-fry for 2 mins, until golden. Add bacon and stir-fry for 1 min.
3) Combine sherry, sugar, soy sauce and sesame oil in a small jug. Pour into wok, add rice and green beans and stir-fry for 2 mins, until coated and heated through. Stir egg through. Transfer to a platter.
4) Heat extra peanut oil in a small frying pan and cook basil leaves for 1 min, until crisp. Arrange on top of fried rice and serve.
