"Authentic" Fried Rice Recipe

I was taught this authentic fried rice recipe by my dear Chinese friend Grace. (one of the benefits of living in Hong Kong!) Its a great one because you can use almost any veg or meat that you want and adapt it to fit your needs and tastes!
Authentic Fried Rice
Rice {brown, white, red}
Chicken {cubed and cooked in a little soy sauce}
Soy Sauce 1/3 cup
Olive Oil 2 TBS
chicken broth 1/4 cup
3 eggs {scrambled and set aside}
vegetables finely chopped
 {carrots, corn, broccoli, spinach or other green, zucchini, mushroom, etc}
tofu {optional}
1. Start with OLD rice. I never knew this until my cooking lesson. I guess the best is day old rice. You want it a bit dried out. Although if I forget I just make it earlier in the day and let it sit out for a couple of hours to dry, nice… I use a mix of brown, white and red rice. Make it according to the directions. 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice should serve about five when everything else is added.
2. Choose your ingredients. I used carrots, corn, a Chinese leafy green, zucchini, egg, and chicken. You can also add tofu, bean curd (the firm kind), and ANY of your favorite vegetables!
 3. Get your vegetables frying in a large pan (wok) with olive oil. Start with those that will take the most time and add the softer veggies as you go. The goal is to have them all soft cooked at the same time. You can add a bit of chicken broth if needed to simmer, but not too much. I start with the carrots, and work to the soft veg… like the leafy greens..
4. When the veggies are ready, add the rice and egg, cook it all until warm. Add soy sauce over the whole thing as you are cooking for flavor. Also a bit of sea salt is a great addition. 

 and put it all together…

 Have you made fried rice before? What do you add? I like this recipes because its fairly healthy and doesn’t have much oil… until next time!
