Reviews for Quick Chicken Fried Rice for Four
"This is a good base recipe but does not have a strong enough flavor for our tastes. I added one small chopped onion, 1/2 tsp five spice, more black pepper and 1 additional tablespoon soy sauce. My husband still served his with additional soy sauce as he wanted even more flavor. I also use brown rice."
"This is a good starter recipe for Fried Rice... Can easily be adjusted to your own taste by adding more soy sauce, other veggies, etc."
"My picky eaters even liked this recipe. They said it tasted as good as the really expensive Japanese Steakhouse that we love.( quite a compliment coming from them). I did add about 3/4 of a teasp. ginger and a couple chopped cloves of garlic to the recipe. Really took it up a notch."
"This is yummy and easy. Use chopsticks to do the scrambling in the center to avoid mixing the eggs into the rice too much before they're set. I substituted turkey for the chicken and regular brown rice for the instant white rice. I made this first and held it warm in the oven while I made the Broccoli in Hoisin Sauce so the broccoli wouldn't be over-cooked. Great combination. The two recipes make a complete meal. I'll definitely make them again."
"This was really lacking in flavor. I added a ton more soy sauce and it still didn't help. I wasn't able to add the onions and the soy sauce was low sodium...could that have been why?"
"We're not big fans of celery so I subbed in some frozen peas; it was a big hit!"
"This dish is excellent! I added bell pepper and onion while I cooked the carrots. It added to the flavor and I managed to sneak more veggies in on my kids. My husband even told me it was way better than the stuff we got in a restaraunt recently!"
"Very easy. I used frozen peas instead of celery and added some tamari sauce."
"So quick. Didn't know exactly what time we would be eating, so I did the prep earlier in the day -- didn't take long -- and whipped it up in no time when we were ready to eat. I used leftover pork instead of chicken. Served it with the Broccoli in Hoisin Sauce featured in the magazine, along with apple slices and cottage cheese. I halved both recipes. Didn't realize it had already been done here! Even halved, we had some leftover. I may freeze it to see how it does."
