A quick and flavorful side dish that's perfect for any occasion. Be sure not to overcook the bacon for the right texture. Plus, it's even better as leftovers!

  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups instant rice
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (cut into chunks)
  • 12 Slices Bacon
  • 1 cup green onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  1. DirectionsFlavorful bacon and chicken fried rice
    1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir instant white rice into boiling water. Cook rice until softened, about 5 minutes.
    2. Heat oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken in hot oil until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes.
    3. Fry bacon in a large wok or skillet over medium-high until hot and cooked through but not yet crunchy, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
    4. Remove bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain fat from wok, reserving 1 to 2 tablespoons of drippings in the bottom of the wok. Cut bacon into small pieces.
    5. Return wok to medium-high heat and heat reserved bacon drippings. Combine rice, chicken, bacon, green onions, and soy sauce in the wok; cook and stir until evenly mixed and hot, 2 to 3 minutes.
