I enjoy fried rice. This recipe is from Seonkyoung Longest and is a good one. I’ve slightly adjusted it to add in a few more veggies and a hint of sesame oil.

It comes together quickly so makes it perfect for a quick, delicious, and satisfying dinner (or lunch!). Enjoy!

  • 2 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten, seasoned with salt
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped (approximately 1½ tsp)
  • 1½ tsp chopped ginger
  • ½ cup small diced onion (approximately ½ of medium size onion)
  • 1 boneless skinless chicken thighs (approximately 4 to 5 oz)
  • ¼ cup carrot, small diced
  • 2 cups cold jasmine rice, or brown jasmine rice, recommended a day old
  • ¼ cup frozen peas, optional
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • sesame seeds for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare vegetables and mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Heat a wok over high heat; add butter and let it melt. Pour beaten eggs and scramble. While they are still soft, remove from wok and set aside.
  3. Into the same wok, add oil and swirl to coat. Add garlic, ginger, and onion, stir fry for 30 seconds or until onion’s transparent.
  4. Add chicken and season with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Cook about 1 minute or chicken is ¾ way cooked, then stir in carrot and cook for a minute.
  5. Add rice and pour sauce mixture. Keep stir and tossing until every grain of rice is evenly coated with sauce, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Stir in frozen peas, green onions, and scrambled egg. Stir and cook everything about 30 seconds to 1 minute and remove from heat.
  7. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with sesame seeds. Enjoy!


  1. You can substitute beef for the chicken.
  2. You can also omit the meat and make it a vegetarian dish.
  3. Another nice addition is adding a potato diced small.
  4. A handful of corn is another good addition.
