Thai Fried Rice {Zojirushi Rice Cooker Giveaway}

Have I told you how much my family loves rice? Especially my son, he could live off rice alone. And one of his favorites is fried rice. I love it too because it’s inexpensive and a great way to clean out the fridge. Yesterday, I wanted to take advantage of the overgrowing Thai basil in my herb garden so I made this Thai style fried rice.

I started with cubed chicken, then leftover broccoli and carrots. Then I found some peas in the freezer and tossed in some eggs scrambled in sesame seed oil. For flavor, I added my version of Thai flavor with sweet chili sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce and some lime juice. These sauces make the rice absolutely addictive. My son went back for seconds and thirds. To finish off this fried rice, I added lots of fresh Thai basil, cilantro, green onions and diced tomatoes.

Since we all love to eat rice so much, I try to make it healthy by making brown rice as much as possible. The one problem is that I absolutely suck at making brown rice. I’ve tried the stovetop, my little rice cooker and baking it with no luck. It’s either gooey, chewy, or more like some odd risotto.

So I have given up and turned to a rice cooker, a really good one. I’ve had a little black and decker for years, and while it does an okay job with white rice, you can’t cook sushi, sweet or brown rice in it and get even halfway good results.
