Fried rice is one of my favourite foods, it reminds me of my Pop.
Pop had bees and he provided our local chinese shop with the honey they used in all of their food. We used to go there for dinner all of the time and Pop loved the special fried rice.
This one doesn’t look like much but it is packed with flavour. It has chicken, crispy chorizo, sweet pineapple and of course egg. Fried rice has to have egg otherwise it’s not right.
I’m sure that Pop would love this even though it’s nothing like the fried rice we used to eat to together.
I hope you make this and share it with the people you love.
Chicken, Chorizo and Pineapple Fried Rice
1 cup brown rice
2 large eggs, beaten
2 chicken thighs, cut into 2cm pieces
1 chorizo, diced
150g pineapple, cut into 2cm pieces
1/2 green capsicum, diced
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Cook the brown rice according to the packet and cool.
Heat a frypan and add 1/2 tablespoon of oil and add the eggs, rotate the pan so the egg covers the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until just cooked, then slide out of pan onto a chopping board. Cut the egg in half then stack the two pieces on top of one another, then cut each piece into 3 strips and stack them all up then cut them all into 1cm pieces.
Add the chicken to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until half cooked, add the chorizo and cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Add the pineapple and capsicum and cook a further 4 minutes add the crushed garlic and cook until fragrant.
Add the rice and the soy sauce to the frypan and cook until the rice is warm. Add the egg and stir through, serve.
