Fried Rice Recipe

fried rice recipe

This delicious home made fried rice is a great alternative to buying takeout. You get the comfort of knowing exactly what is in your meal and you pay much less when you are feeding more than 1 person. It’s versatile enough that you can add ingredients that you like and remove the ones you don’t.

For the chicken I use a chicken breast boiled and shredded but you can also buy a pre-cooked roast chicken from whichever store you shop at. I also add prawns and if they aren’t available, I substitute using canned baby prawns from my local supermarket.

The other ingredients are common household ingredients. This recipe makes a lot of rice (because I cook for 5 or more people) but the left overs can be frozen.

I do not add any extra oil to the recipe for frying as I get plenty of oil from the bacon but if you find you don’t have enough oil you can add a teaspoon of olive oil (or whatever oil you prefer).

Prep Time: 20 minutes.
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes.


  • 500g Rice
  • 1 Red Capsicum – Thinly Sliced
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 Cup of Green Peas.
  • Shredded Chicken
  • 250g Bacon – Thinly Sliced.
  • 6 Eggs.
  • Bean Shoots.
  • Cooked Prawns – Shelled & Deveined.
  • Half a cup of spring onions.
  • Soy Sauce to taste.
  1. Cook rice until soft. Rinse under cold water to stop the rice from further cooking.
  2. Cook eggs in a pan. I simply break the eggs in to the pan and stir until cooked. I make sure the egg is broken up into smaller chunks.
  3. In a frying pan on medium heat, add bacon, spring onions, and peas and cook.
  4. Add rice and stir through.
  5. Add chicken, capsicum, eggs, and stir through.
  6. Add prawns and cook until heated.
  7. Add bean shoots. I use an entire bag purchased from my local supermarket but you can add them to your own preference.
  8. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  9. Add soy sauce to taste. I use approximately 40mls.
  10. Serve.
