  2. Mix the soy sauce and sugar together. Turn up the heat, add the cooked rice to the pan, heat through, then splash in the sweet soy sauce. Stir through the egg and serve straight away, with more soy sauce if you like.

I added some onion, 5 spice and some left over chicken to this recipe as others have suggested. It was very nice perfect for a quick winter meal.

Very enjoyable, but must admit i did add extra ingredients as i thought it would have been bland otherwise. Used bacon, onions and peppers, chilli powder, cumin and chinese five spice.

This dish was great, nice variety. Will try adding some pineapple next time!

Yes done this dish tonight, rather easy to make. I used thin sirloin and cut it into strips instead of bacon. It was good even my daughter commented on it how nec it was although I would use more soya sauce as it seemed a bit dry and would certainly do it again with spring onions too.

use doubled garlic, ginger, suger and soy sause. Otherwise a really good dish.

I've made this before and really enjoyed it. Really tasty and quick and easy! I've got a bit of smoked mackerel in the fridge which i might use instead of the bacon. mmmm :)

My 2 children aged 4 and 1 loved this. I would add a bit more spice next time for us grown-ups though, as it seemed to be lacking a bit of 'something'!
I used smoked bacon for a bit more flavour, and mixed mushrooms.
Would make it again.

Made this last night, but fried some chicken with it, and it was absolutely delicious. Definitely on the do-again list.

I love this rice and so do my dad and my boyfriend. It's so versatile, I end up making it all the time! I especially like to serve with mince-stuffed-peppers or chicken kebabs.

I have made this numerous times now - it is one of my store cupboard standbys. I use pancetta cubes rather than bacon. I agree with adding spring onions at the end and I probably use more soy sauce than is recommended but otherwise this is an extremely tasty dish.

Yummy dish! For vege, i used the frozen stir fry ones, chopping them up into smaller pieces... Skipped the ginger but added more garlic... Had a VERY chinese-fried rice taste to it.

This dish is spot on when you want something fast and tasty to eat!!!

I made this last night and it tasted great, but it was a bit dry, anyone got any suggestions?

This was very good and a little unusual which made it quite interesting. However, unless you have the cooked rice already available, it's not going to be ready in the 12 minutes stated.

This was nice but lacked something - not as tasty as I was expecting. I added red peppers and cashews to liven it up a bit - would try chicken next time

I used chicken & ham instead of bacon & added red capsicum (pepper)

I found this was a really good recipe to use up the other half of a roast chicken - which is always a puzzle, in our house! I left out the bacon and put in the cold roast chicken. Went down extremely well, was easy peasy to do - so will definitely come again.

As a novice I tried this one & totally loved it!! I did add the sliced peppadews as recommended (I replced the bacon with quorn as a veggie & did one with bacon for the boyfreind) Will deffo make again as a quick meal!
