Chicken and vegetables fried rice is an eastern-style dish that people normally taste at the Chinese Restaurant.
I like Asian food sooo much, I love soy sauce…I think in a certain way I am dependant on eastern-food 😀 ! When I was at university, I ate it at least once per week! I remember that, when I lived alone in Palermo, studying all the day for my exams, the “Chinese dinner” was the best moment of the week!
Now I prefer cooking oriental food by myself than ordering it at the Chinese restaurant 😉 . In this way, I am sure to eat a homemade wholesome meal!
You can serve chicken and vegetables fried rice in small portions combined with other oriental food or prepare it as a main course.
