Chinese Chicken Fried Rice

Menu:
Chinese Chicken Fried Rice
Idaho Potato Cake
2 gallons Purdyville Juice (recipe not given)

Comments: Even Teman, who dislikes most Oriental dishes, can tolerate this. The rest of us really like it. I left out the ham this time and several people missed it. If you don’t have dark sesame oil, I wouldn’t worry about it; the flavor of it in this dish is pretty subtle. Those of you who like ginger should really go with the fresh grated ginger, as explained in the notes.

The Idaho Potato Cake is a chocolate cake that uses up 1 cup of mashed potatoes. Did you ever try to divide 1 cup of mashed potatoes between 14 people? This is the way to do it. Leftovers never tasted so good!

Lowfat and Lovin’ It Pork & Ham
Poultry Volume 3

Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
9 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
Vegetable cooking spray
2 tablespoons vegetable oil — divided
3 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast halves — cut into strips
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger — see note
3 garlic cloves — minced
1 1/8 pounds onions — slivered (3 cups)
6 ounces extra lean ham — julienned
8 cups rice, cooked — (2 2/3 cup raw)
3 cups frozen peas — thawed
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup dry sherry — optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 1/2 cups romaine lettuce — thinly sliced
1 1/3 cups sliced green onions

To cook rice, put 2 2/3 cup raw rice and 5 1/3 cup water in a medium
saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook ten
minutes. Cut up all ingredients before you begin cooking.

Combine eggs, sesame oil and salt in a bowl; stir well, and set aside.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high
heat until hot. Add egg mixture; cook until set, stirring constantly.
Remove egg from skillet; set aside.

Heat the vegetable oil in our 3 gallon pot over high heat. Add chicken;
saute until done. Remove from skillet; set aside, and keep warm.

Heat additonal vegetable oil (if needed; I often find the chicken gives
off enough liquid that I can do without it) in same pot over medium-high
heat. Add fresh ginger if using and garlic; saute 10 seconds. Add onion,
ground ginger and ham; saute 1 minute. Add rice; saute 2 minutes. Add
peas; saute until heated through.

Return egg mixture and chicken to pan. Add soy sauce,sherry, and salt;
cook an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat; stir in lettuce and green
onions. Serve immediately.
