Confession time. I love Panda Express. The orange chicken and fried rice is delicious. Lucky for me, I don’t live anywhere near one and it is an occassional indulgence on road trips since as we all know it’s not the healthiest option. However, it is actually pretty easy to make some amazing fried rice at home that is actually good for you.
The key to making a really good chicken fried rice at home that actually crisps up and browns is using cold, previously cooked rice. To make this easy, I usually try to plan a meal with rice a few days before and just save the leftovers. Then you just need to grab some previously cooked chicken, which I always have on hand, and veggies and you are ready to make dinner in about 15 minutes.
