“This was my mother's favorite way to use up leftover white rice. It really doesn't taste like the fried rice you get at a restaurant, but it still a great meal. I typically throw in whatever vegetables I have in my kitchen, and leave out the shrimp or chicken. I also cut this down to accommodate the amount of rice I have. Cooking time does not include making rice, chicken or shrimp since this is usually made out of leftovers.”
