Easy Chicken Fried Rice
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large flat-bottomed carbon-steel wok or large, heavy skillet over high heat. Add eggs and cook, without stirring, until fully cooked on one side, about 30 seconds. Flip and cook until just cooked through, about 15 seconds. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.Advertisement
Add 1 tablespoon oil to the wok along with scallions, ginger and garlic; cook, stirring, until the scallions have softened, about 30 seconds. Add chicken; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add vegetables; cook, stirring, until just tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the contents of the wok to a large plate.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the wok; add rice and stir until hot, 1 to 2 minutes. As you stir, pull the rice from the bottom to the top so it all gets coated with oil and evenly cooked.
Return the chicken mixture and the eggs to the wok; add tamari (or soy sauce) and stir until well combined.
Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
