  1. Assemble all necessary ingredients before beginning the cooking process.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together an egg with a splash of water until well combined.
  3. Place a large skillet or wok over medium-low heat and melt a small amount of butter in it. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, allowing it to cook undisturbed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until set. Once cooked, transfer the egg to a cutting board and slice it into thin strips. Keep these aside for later use.
  4. Using the same skillet, increase the heat to medium-high and add some vegetable oil to heat. Add the chopped onion to the hot oil and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion becomes soft, which should take about 3 minutes.
  5. To the onions, add the pre-cooked rice, cooked chicken pieces, a generous drizzle of soy sauce, and a sprinkle of ground black pepper. Stir the mixture well and continue to cook for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the rice to become fully coated with the seasonings and the chicken to warm through.
  6. Finally, reintroduce the sliced egg into the skillet. Gently fold it into the rice mixture, ensuring it is evenly distributed throughout.
  7. Once everything is well-mixed and piping hot, remove the skillet from the heat. Dish out the savory chicken fried rice and enjoy while it’s warm.


  • – For best results, use day-old rice as it’s drier and makes for a better texture in fried rice.
    – Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or bean sprouts for added crunch and nutrition.
    – Adjust the soy sauce and sesame oil to taste, but be mindful of the sodium content.
