Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Cooking time : 10 minutes
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Serves : 4 to 5 generous

2 Cups long grain rice
2 pieces bacon diced
1 piece chicken diced
12 green prawns
1/4 cup peas
2 eggs  (optional)
4 spring onions light part chopped (discard the darker ends)
Olive oil for pan
Soy sauce  (optional)

Prepare the rice in a pot of boiling water.  Set timer for 10 minutes.

Place your chicken into a pan with a light drizzle of olive oil.  Cook the chicken on both sides but try not to burn or brown it too much, the chicken should be light in colour but properly cooked.  Set aside into a bowl. 

Prepare in another pan the bacon with olive oil and cook until brown on both sides then turn off heat and then set aside in a bowl.

Then cook the eggs in the same pan you cooked the bacon in.  Cook it and mix it as it cooks into scramble mixture.  Place aside in bowl.

Once the rice is cooked after 10 minutes drain through strainer and place into a large wok. Cover while preparing rest of ingredients.

Cook the prawns in a pan with olive oil until cooked. Set aside.

 Now add the chicken, bacon, prawns and egg to the rice in the wok and gently mix through.

Then you can add your spring onion, peas.

Add soy sauce to your individual bowls if preferred.

You can also add bean shoots if you like but it tends to make the dish a little more bitter.
