Chicken Fried Rice (Laos)

“Chicken fried rice just like the restaurants but better.”

Yield: 6 Servings


1/2 lb chicken breast
1/2 cup green onion
soy sauce
hoisin sauce
red pepper
fish sauce
jasmine rice
2 eggs
1/2 cup water


Fry the chicken, add a couple of dashes of soy sauce, garlic, hoison sauce and let it fry until cooked. Cook the jasmine rice until done.

Place rice to a frying pan, add a little oil so the rice won’t stick, then add 1/2 cup of water, fish sauce, soy sauce and a teaspoon of sugar. Fry on medium heat for about 5 minutes and add chopped red peppers for spice, 2 eggs to the side to cook. Once egg almost done stir the egg around the rice so it will look almost like scrambled eggs.

Add green onions and chicken and let it fry for 2 minutes. Then just serve with vegetables if preferred. Takes only 25 minutes to prepare and serve.
