Chinese Chicken Fried Rice | Restaurant Style Chicken Fried Rice | Egg Fried Rice Recipe

My favorite from the Chinese cuisine. Brings back nostalgic memories, when I was young my brother & I used to crave for Chinese food and almost every time we used to go out for lunch/ dinner with our parents this is the dish we used to order. So much so my mom because of our great demand she used to make chicken fried rice at home. I really wonder how she put up with us... seriously!!! :-) we were such brats at home always fighting and especially me I used to jump on top of the bed so many times slight escape from hitting the ceiling fan... :P Most times amma used to tell us to get out of the house and lock the door and we still would not stop, we used to knock our neighbors to our rescue and ask them to call her... LOL good old days!!! 
About this dish - I can say its simple and easy if you make the rice and vegetable preparations before hand. I have also done a different fried rice from the Thai Cuisine - Thai Prawn Fried rice, do have a look at it. This rice can be accompanied by a Garlic chicken sauce, follow the links please.
