The Secret is Out

Savory chicken and zesty ginger are the ultimate partners in crime in this tasty fried rice. With the addition of traditional Asian ingredients, it cooks up into a delicious combination of tasty flavors.

With hot chili sesame oil and soy sauce, this dish has all the flavors of classic Chicken Fried Rice. Aside from these common ingredients, this recipe also calls for a secret ingredient that many home cooks tend to skip. This secret is the sherry.

Dry sherry is used in many Asian recipes to add a bit of complexity and added depth. For this recipe, you can use a common dry sherry or you can also use Chinese rice wine, which can be found in most supermarkets. If you can’t find either, mirin, which is a Japanese sweet rice wine, is another good substitute. Whichever you choose, this added ingredient will give your fried rice recipe the added flavor you desire.

Pinch of This, Bit of That

For added tang and depth of flavor, season your rice with a touch of oyster sauce, fish sauce or hoisin sauce. These ingredients are also great for their saltiness. Be careful not to use too much, as you can overdo the salt content as well as weigh down the rice. Just remember, a little goes a long way.
