Chicken Fried Rice: What Is It And How Is It Made?

Asian food (particularly Chinese) is one of the most varied cuisine’s on the planet. It has its origins in China more than 3500 years ago. Chicken fried rice is one of the most popular dishes from that region. It is also known as chow mein, chow mein chicken, and pho bo. It can be found in almost every restaurant from Chinatown to Hong Kong. The story of how the dish came to be is quite interesting, though.

The original recipe for chicken fried rice is from the Cantonese province. In fact, it is the earliest form of stir fried rice not recorded in the Chinese dictionary of Garland. The typical blend of rice and vegetables was prepared by servants in the kitchen, and it was called huijiao. It was popular in the south and perhaps as much as San Francisco. When the rice was prepared for the first time, it was done by hand, and it was not until the late 1880’s when restaurants began using large steam-jacketed kettles to cook the dish.

The dish, quite literally, never went out of style. In fact, it became so popular in the 1930’s that 25 years later, the dish would come back into fashion.

Here is a comparison of the price of chicken fried rice in the United States compared to India’s, for instance:

As you can see, chicken fried rice is quite a bit cheaper, but it is also considerably tastier than Indian chicken fry. This is because the chicken is both lean and fresh, unlike the Indian fry. In addition, American chickens are free-range and treated properly.


Chicken fried rice is superbly tasty and has rapidly become one of the most popular dishes in the world. I love it in both India and the United States. I hope you too will be able to enjoy this superb food item.
