  4. Add shiitake mushrooms

    • Once chicken is cooked, add shiitake mushroom slices and mix well.


  5. Fry rice

    • Toss in cooked rice and sauce.
    • Mix well and stir-fry for another 3 minutes until mushrooms is cooked and rice takes on color.

    | Best to use leftover rice from the night before. Refrigerated rice loses its moisture content, and won’t be too mushy and wet, resulting in better texture.
