Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I change the oils?

Instead of using the olive oil and sesame oil, you could use just butter, or all olive oil.

            Can I use different rice?

This is a recipe for healthy fried rice. I made it with brown rice for that reason. The brown rice could be replaced with quinoa.

            Which vegetables make it taste best?

With this dish, you can choose your favorites, make a combination of two or more and enjoy. The common vegetables that are added would be grated or chopped carrots and baby peas. I prefer broccoli and cauliflower. I also chop up some colored peppers to add in with the rice.

            Can I add bacon?

Bacon is an awesome addition. It brings a touch of saltiness to the fried rice. Besides, chicken and bacon are the perfect pair.
