Kitchen Tip: I use this skillet to make this recipe.

COOK’S NOTE: The rice for this recipe needs to be completely chilled so that it can be easily broken apart into individual grains without any clumping or sticking.

I suggest making the rice a day or two (even as much as 4-5 days) before you want to use it. The key to great fried rice is using rice that is as dry as possible so that your fried rice won’t be mushy or soft.
