I love broccoli because it's so healthy but you may include any veggies you choose. It's a great way to use up leftover rice.
Allow the rice to sit a moment to cool after it's finished cooking. This will prevent it from getting mushy when you fry it. This dish is best, however, using leftover rice.
This was a wonderful and easy recipe!!! We gobbled it all up! I added 2 boneless, skinless cubed chicken breasts. After heating the oil, I added the chicken and per a previous review, cooked it with minced garlic, a tsp of ginger and 1 tsp of lemon pepper. Then I added a bag of frozen broccoli stir fry veggies (which not only has the broccoli but also carrots, red peppers, and mushrooms). I then followed the recipe per normal. The result was great! Tasted like we were eating out. Thank you Trisha for sharing this EASY and tasty dish! - 18 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is a good place to start but you really need steamed rice to make a decent fried rice. Par boiled fresh broccoli (not frozen) and some garlic also make a world of difference. Served with Grilled Salmon II from this site. - 16 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a great recipe and very easy to do! I added some ingredients such as garlic, hoisin sauce, marinated tofu, and flaked cooked chicken. I also used normal rice that was already cooked. But DO NOT use fresh cooked rice or else your dish will come out mushy. Hope that helps out some people! - 21 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
