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.
