22 SCHEZWAN CHICKEN FRIED RICE

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!.


Today's special is schezwan chicken Fried rice for lunch. Hubby and kids enjoyed eating along with pepper chicken that I also made. This is similar to my schezwan fried rice recipe.


Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Chicken - 1 lb
Onion - 1 medium cut into thin slices
Capsicum - 1 cut into thin slices
Green Onions - 1 bunch chopped fine
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Schezwan sauce - 1 tbsp
Soya sauce or worcestire sauce or All purpose sauce - 2 tbsp
Salt as needed
Sesame oil - 2 or 3 tbsp( can also used olive oil)


Cut chicken into medium cubes/pieces. Wash with turmeric powder and drain. Later add 1/2 cup of water and cook on stove top till they are soft but not mushy. You can cook in a pressure for upto one whistle. Keep aside.

Wash and soak rice for 15 minutes. Add 3 1/2 cups of water or chicken broth with salt and cook till done ( Can cook in a rice cooker). Cool and fluff it up with a fork so it is grainy and does not stick to each other.



Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onions. Fry till transculent. Next add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. Then add capscium and saute on high for 3 - 4 minutes. If needed can also add other veggies( but that should not dominate the taste. so try adding very little of each). Saute till they are crisp and firm.Then add the cooked chicken pieces and fry together for another 3 - 4 minutes. Also add the half of the green onions and saute. Next add in all the sauces and salt. Mix well. Reduce flame and gently add rice and mix well. Also add the remianing green onions and mix well. Can also add pepper powder and mix if more spice is needed.

What can I add tht would add spice kick to it?

Padma said...

Hi Mrs Akhter.
To add spice, you can add more of schezwan sauce or combine sauce and chilli garlic sauce or chilli sauce for the spice to increase.
Thanks
