My family loves Chinese fried rice and I found an easier way to make it,In the oven.I don't have a recipe I just kind of made this up.I first maKe long grain white rice in my rice cooker,this could be made on the stove following the cooking instructions on the bag.I make it a day ahead of time.I spread the cooked rice out on a sheet pan and let it cool,cover with tin foil and let it sit in the fridge overnight.It will be hard the next day.I then put it in my covered roasting pan.Sprinkle some canola oil on and soy sauce toss to coat.I then sprinkle with 5 spice powder and toss again.I cut boneless chicken breast or pork loin into small pieces and stir fry in my frying pan using a little oil and sprinkle on a little soy sauce.I add this to my rice along with dried veggies that I found in the spice isle by the spices. Toss to mix these into the rice bake in a 325* preheated oven for about 20 mins.in the mean time beat some eggs with a little soy sauce and scramble them,set aside when done cooking.Check rice in the oven to see if it is done warming up if not stir and allow more baking time.When it is finished warming up stir in the scambled eggs.I finish this with chopped green onions and beans sprouts also stirred in.Just about anything you like can be added,stir fried veggies, shrimp,bamboo shoots ,water chestnuts,peas.carrots  whatever.My Guys like this better than what we get at the Chinese restaurant.This time I cooked 6 cups of rice and made a large amount.

So many years ago when I made fried rice, just like you, I cooked the rice a day ahead of time.  And I baked a small pork roast rubbed with soy sauce and 5 spice powder (so very hard to get back then) When it was done I chopped and tore it very fine. 
Time to eat I threw that rice and shredded pork into  a skillet with some BACON GREASE to fry it up with lots of green onions.
Yours sounds better tasting and better for health.

I always plan on making Fried Rice when I make pork.
I make extra pork JUST to have enough for the fried rice.
I have a request now from my Son in law to put extra eggs in it when I make it.  My Grandaughter LOVES Fried Rice.  My Grandson is not particularly fond of rice but will eat a plate full when I make it. Go figure! Maybe it's because I ask him to help me make it and kids always seem to eat what the help make.

When I met my husband and I would make rice for the Fried Rice he always asked me to make extra rice for breakfast.  Apparently his mom would put  cold rice in a fry pan with some butter and break it up and start getting it hot and a little color on it then she would add cinnamon and sugar. Well I thought it sounded terrible but made it for him and I have become a convert.  I like it a lot but it is not something I can make often....not a low calorie breakfast!

Nikki - Until I was an adult and ate my first meal in a Chinese restaurant I have never
tasted rice cooked "dry".
As a kid we had "rice pudding" ......... rice cooked in milk until very soft and mushy.....
seasoned with lots of sugar and cinnamon.

i love to make pork fried rice! After i have a pork roast for dinner there is always enough left over for pork fried rice. I fry up the rice so that is alittle crispy then I scramble an egg salt and pepper it add my rice let that brown just a bit sprinkle with soy sauce add green onions and voila!!! My family loves it! Its also good with chicken and tuna fish.

When I was in college, several of my friends were from Japan, Korea, China and Hawaii.  They would cook up a big pot of rice and we would have fried rice - Hawaiian style, Korean style, Chinese, Japanese - depending on who was in the kitchen and what kind of groceries we had on hand.  always delicious!
The girl from Thailand had some chili sauce labled "mild" -  it would puff smoke out your ears!
We had great fun devouring those rice dishes.

Nancy, we didn't have real Chinese food in Iowa while I was growing up either. And I loved the white rice with milk, sugar and cinnamon! In fact, to this day if we have rice left over from a Chinese meal, I always warm it up in the microwave with milk, sugar and cinnamon...comfort food.

I love fried rice and rice in any form. I used to make fried rice all the time and I do love it when the rice does get crunchy. My recipe is similar to Gale's but I do use a little Chinese dried sausage that I would buy in an Asian market. It is sweet and adds a little extra flavor. This was something our Szchuan recipe our Chinese friends made.

My brother in law was Japanese,his mom never made fried rice.Mrs.H did make sushi and teriyaki.People think that sushi is raw fish some sushi contain raw fish but not all.Sashimi is raw fish,sushi is rice.My favorite sushi has eel in it,the eel is not raw.Just wonderful.My niece taught me how to make sushi and I make it a few times a year and I think that will be soon.I need to get over to the oriental market to get seaweed and the other things to make it.We also eat Furikaki nori which is a seaweed seasoning that is sprinkled on white rice.I also always rinse my rice several times before cooking until the water isn't cloudy.It will be less starchy and the rice will not clump together.My hubby will not eat sushi but my boys love it.

My son loves fried rice. He will ask for that instead of the regular rice. I don't want to make it too often because of the fat that is absorbed into the rice, but it is delicious!
