This is a quick version of chicken fried rice made with eggs and chicken. This version has eggs added into the fried rice along with chicken, vegetables and eggs. It is best to use day old rice for making fried rice.
This is one dish which i made few days back and loved it to the core. This is very similar to chicken fried rice, but instead to adding the eggs into the rice. Made it as fried egg and topped the rice. It not only looked pretty but tasted so delicious as well.

Chicken Fried Rice Ingredients
Use boneless chicken breast or chicken thighs which are cut into small pieces. Chicken thigh stays moist and juicy so i prefer those.
I like to add a mix of carrots, cabbage, bell peppers. mushrooms, baby corn and sweet corn can be used.
Cooked and cooled day old leftover rice should be used for best fried rice. Basmati or jasmine rice can be used.
I like to add soy sauce and vinegar. You can use chilli sauce in your fried rice too.
salt, pepper and sugar are the main seasonings in any fried rice.
