Chicken Barbecue Fried Rice is one fried rice recipe variation that uses grilled or baked chicken as a main ingredient.
This recipe is perfect if you have left over chicken and rice. Instead of throwing them away, you can turn these leftovers into something interesting. In my case, I make Chicken Barbecue Fried Rice whenever I have chicken barbecue or chicken inasal leftover. I also make sure that I use day old cooked rice.
I am sure that all of us want to make the best fried rice possible. In order to that, we have to ensure the quality of our ingredients. Rice is the most important ingredient in any fried rice recipe. The less sticky the rice is the better. When rice turns cold, it becomes less sticky. This is the reason why day old or refrigerated cooked rice is recommended.
The flavor for this fried rice recipe comes from the grilled chicken and barbecue sauce. You can use more than a cup of chicken barbecue if desired, but do not add more barbecue sauce other than the recommended measurement (unless you are adding more rice). You don’t want the flavor of your fried rice to be over powering.
