Sweet and Spicy Chicken Fried Rice

Posted: May 16, 2011 in Chicken, Rice, Stir-fry

Sweet and spicy chicken fried rice was the result of my inability to cook a reasonable quantity of rice. Not a bad thing at all! I hate wastage, so am always trying to utilise all my leftover ingredients and when I saw this recipe, it had my mouth-watering. I love fried rice. My secret ingredient normally is fruit chutney. So it’s great to try something different. I have a plum sauce with chilli in it that I used and also a chilli and garlic/ginger stirfry sauce. If you don’t like hot things you can limit the amount of chilli you put it or alter the base sauce to suit. Kecap manis is a sweet soy sauce and can be found in the asian aisle of the supermarket. Unfortunately the peas I used weren’t great, a bit dehydrated. But you can throw whatever you like into the fried rice. I added some corn and capsicum in addition to the base ingredients.

  5. […] When I moved out of home I remember ringing mum up and asking her for a select few recipes that I just couldn’t live without. This was one. Chilli fried fish from the Womens Weekly Chinese cook book. It must have been published in the eighties but I remember this cookbook with fond memories. The fish was coated in batter before being bathed in a sweet sticky chilli sauce. This dish was all about texture and taste for me. I love the crunch of the fried fish combined with the sticky sweet sauce. Even reheated the next day it is still so good. It may of lost it’s crunch but the sauce permeates the whole of the fish. It’s making me hungry again just thinking about it! I served this meal with the great sweet and spicy chicken fried rice […]
