THAI CHICKEN FRIED RICE

This is real Thai Chicken Fried Rice, just how it’s made in Thailand! We made this recipe at Cookery School recently and it was much enjoyed. I had a small bowlful for lunch and scrummy it was! So quick and so easy, what a great midweek dinner it makes! Extra nice if served with a fresh tropical fruit salad for pudding!

The scrambling of the egg in the wok with the chicken pushed to the side is a classic Thai method. Serve it with wedges of tomato and slices of cucumber for a truly authentic experience.
