When cooking fried rice recipes, it's better to have day old rice that's been refrigerated. The rice is best when it's cold, firm and easy to separate the kernals. Fresh hot cooked rice will be more challenging and result in gummy fried rice. Our recipe is perfect for days when you have left over rice. If you don't have left over rice, try to make rice the day ahead of time and then refrigerate the rice.
In large non-stick pan, turn on medium heat, warm the pan, then add 1 Tablespoon of oil (save other half of oil for another step). Once oil is hot, add onions and garlic. Cook until translucent.
Add chicken, cook for about 1 minute untnil chicken becomes brown. Then add pineapple, celery, salt and cook for about 2-3 minutes till chicken is fully cooked. Remove from pan and add mixture in medium bowl. Set aside.
Continue cooking for about 3-4 more minutes until rice, egg and chicken/pineapple mixture are fully combined and cooked. Season with black pepper and/or salt to taste.
