Lots of crispy pieces of bacon and plenty of spring onions make this an enjoyable dish! It doesn't take long to prepare, especially if you are opt to use leftover chicken to begin with.
I make this often for my husband, but usually we have this as a main dish rather than a side. I do add in a few extras, though: an egg (omelet-style, cut into small strips), 1 t. of curry powder, frozen peas or shelled edamame, and red pepper flakes to taste. Sometimes I'll omit the egg and add drained pineapple to change it up. All around a great basic recipe with room for a little creativity, and the leftovers are indeed amazing. - 08 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We omitted the green onion as I'm the only one that will eat them here but otherwise followed the directions as instructed. We really enjoyed this, my husband asked me to fix it again. I'm not sure how the rice was supposed to turn out (it was more greasy/mushy than anything) but had a really good flavor. Went great with a loaded baked potato (no, we don't count calories like we should) and green beans! - 29 Dec 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is amazing!! I did change up a few things: regular white rice instead of instant, purple onion sauteed, celery and some chicken bullion. This is now my go to chicken fried rice recipe. - 03 Mar 2019 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
