‘Better Than Takeout’ Special Fried Rice

Special Fried Rice

I love chinese food, and Special Fried Rice is one of my favorite dishes.

I always want to try and recreate my version of my favorite foods at home – and this was no exception. When I had some leftover chicken and ham I decided Special Fried Rice was the perfect dish to use them in.

This is obviously not a genuine Chinese recipe….because I made it up all myself! However, I was more than happy with the results and I wanted to share this ‘better than takeout’ meal with you all.

What is your favorite Chinese food?
