    It wasn’t awful but not super flavorful. If I make it again I would add teriyaki or some other sauce besides soy sauce

    I cook this all the time. I usually leave out the chicken and it’s so easy and delicious. I use 4 eggs and extra soy sauce.

    This was good.. tip.. cook rice a day ahead and put in refrigerator this keeps the rice from being soggy

    Pretty good. I added a little bit of sriracha to give it a hint more flavor and it really impressed.

    Delicious! I overdid it a little with the sesame oil as I used it for both the chicken and the veg- next time I’ll olive oil it a little. Other than my mistake it was perfect.

    A little bland but quick and easy. At least my kids are able to add more soy sauce to taste. Will make again and probably tweak it a little bit.

    It’s turned out good, but I added 2 garlic cloves and a little more soy sauce for a little extra flavor. I also used rotisserie chicken. I think it’s a good starter recipe, I have never made fried rice before so now I have the concept and can go from there.

    It was alittle bland..had to add more seasonings and soy sauce, but got it to where my family liked it. I say it was ok
    Nicole Sillaman a year ago
    I would definitely use less soy sauce next time
