Fried Rice

My family has several Chinese and Polynesian foods that are among our top favorites! Fried Rice is one we have made for years! It can be a meal in itself if you add chicken, shrimp or even beef to it! But we love to serve it as a side dish with Chicken Basil Stir FryBeef and Broccoli Stir Fry or Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken, and don’t forget the Egg Roll!
