Thai Chicken Fried Rice

The key to making perfect fried rice is using cold leftover rice.

There’s a really great Thai restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn I used to go to all the time called Sea that has a great vibe and a DJ. I always ordered the fried rice because it’s just amazing! I was on a mission to make this myself, and after researching and experimenting, I managed to get very close. Thai fried rice gets it’s unique flavor from the fish sauce, soy sauce and chili peppers. The jasmine rice is a must! Although here I used chicken, I’ve also made this with shrimp, beef or pork. Enjoy!

  1. Fantastic. My husband is picky (not so much as to what he’ll eat, but he cooks too, so…) and we all loved this.

    High on the, ‘make again, please’ list.

  2. This is good. I didn’t have peppers but it needed extra soy sauce for my taste. I served with gochuchang sauce. (I have no idea how to spell that) to kick it up instead. Pretty good! Great use of leftover rice. 

  3. This was DELICIOUS! My husband and I loved it. We like a lot of spice so added more Thai peppers, but it was perfect. And satisfied our craving for fried rice from our favorite hibachi restaurant — but so much healthier. Thank you Gina!! As always! 

  4. This was delicious. I omitted the chicken and used a marinated tofu to make it vegetarian. Hubby and I loved it!
