In a small bowl, beat egg with water. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium low heat. Allow the egg to cook without disturbing it for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from frying pan and cut into thin strips.
Heat oil in same frying pan; add onion and saute until soft. Then add rice, soy sauce, pepper and chicken. Stir fry together for about 5 minutes, then stir in egg. Serve hot.
I thought that this was lovely as did my 5 year old daughter.....hubby on the other hand's not keen on 'dry''rice' dishes...so had to make him some curry sauce!lol!I made a slight change to the recipe...i sprinkled the chopped chicken with a little 'Thai 7 Spice' before i fried it for that bit extra flavour....it made all the difference! - 06 Jul 2011
