  • 4 cups Cooked Rice: Use your favorite type of rice, whether it’s jasmine, basmati, or brown rice. Cooking the rice ahead of time ensures that it’s cooled and firm, which helps it fry up nicely without becoming mushy.
  • 1/2 lb Boneless Chicken Breast or Medium-size Cooked Shrimp: Cooked and cut into bite-size pieces. You can use either chicken, shrimp, or a mix of both for added protein and flavor.
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas and Carrots: These add a pop of color and sweetness to the dish. Using frozen vegetables makes preparation quicker and easier.
  • 1 White Onion, Chopped: Onions add a nice crunch and a depth of flavor to the fried rice.
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced: Garlic infuses the dish with a rich, aromatic flavor that complements the other ingredients perfectly.
  • 2 Eggs: The eggs add richness and texture to the fried rice. Scrambling them with the vegetables helps distribute their flavor throughout the dish.
  • 3 tablespoons Sesame Oil: Sesame oil adds a nutty, savory flavor that is essential for authentic-tasting fried rice.
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce: Soy sauce provides the salty, umami flavor that ties all the ingredients together. Adjust the amount according to your taste preference.
