Fried Rice

This is a lovely tasty fried rice, in the Caribbean they modified the Chinese influence with stronger tastier flavours and it shows. The addition of caramelised sugar stewed chicken deepens the taste and makes it more wholesome.

2 Breasts of Chicken cleaned and seasoned. (Chop small and stir in 1 tsp dark soy, 2 tsp light, 1 tbs chopped coriander, 4 cloves garlic chopped and salt and pepper. Leave for an hour or more )

1 cauliflower
1 green peppers
1 red pepper
2 large carrots
1 onion
8 oz rice (long grain is best)

This is  very good as a light diet meal, with a side salad or as a big meal with BBQ as shown above.

Cook rice as normal but drain while still a little undercooked. Leave to dry if possible for an hour or so

All vegetables must be sliced and chopped into small cubes.

Heat 3 tbpns oil in a wok on high heat. and add 1 teaspoon brown sugar. Wait until sugar melts and bubbles and turns dark.

Add seasoned chicken stir and cover. Leave on high heat for 5 minutes. Uncover, and add carrots and onions and covering let cook for further 5 minutes. Uncover and add cauliflower and a sprinkle of salt, and cover for another 3 minutes. Finally add peppers stir, and cover for two minutes. Uncover and add rice and stir vigorously. Add 1 teaspoon of dark soy if you want the rice darker and stir to mix and colour ingredients well. Add 3/4 oz butter and stir in gently. Remove from heat and mix again. This reheats well in the microwave and keeps well.
