Chinese Chicken Fried Rice !


Hello there,

Its very first chinese dish for the blog.. though i make it now and then didnt get time to take step wise pictures. 

And this is purely chinese and not the Indo-chinese dish available in our Indian restaurants and road side shops. No chillis or garam masala :)

I tried my best to find some authentic chinese dishes from books and other blogs and finally came up with this fried rice. Though i missed one main ingredient Oyster sauce.




INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups cooked rice with salt
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 3 eggs
  • few broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 big garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup green peas (fresh/frozen)
  • salt as needed
  • 2 tsp crushed pepper (preferably white pepper)
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Oyster sauce


STEPS

  • Heat a pan and add 1 tbsp of oil.
  • Once oil is hot add the diced chicken breast.
  • Saute them and let them cook for couple of minutes



  • Add salt and pepper and keep cooking.
  • Drizzle some dark soy sauce and once chicken is cooked well transfer them to a plate and keep aside.



  • Break the eggs in the same pan and scramble them. 
  • Do not make them into tiny pieces. Once cooked transfer them and keep aside.


  •  In the same add some more oil and throw in the sliced onions. 
  • Once transparent add the green peas and saute for few minutes.
  • Add the broccoli florets and fry them for a while sprinkling some salt.
  • Remove them in a plate and keep aside.
  • You can also add green spring onions instead of pink.



  • Now that everything needed for the fried rice is ready, we just need to mix them all and fry them together.
  • Add the remaining oil in the pan (preferably a wok) and add the cooked rice. Fry the rice for 3 - 4 minutes and then add the eggs and mix it well with the rice.



  • Now add the chicken and the onion peas broccoli to the rice and mix them well and keep frying in high heat for 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle some crushed pepper and add the light soy sauce and mix them well.
  • Traditional Chinese fried rices have Oyster sauce as their main ingredient. However i didn't add it.


Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with any chinese gravy dish or just chilli/ tomato sauce.
