My sister used to make this for me when we lived together in New York, and I loved it! Fried rice is the perfect way to use up leftovers, so feel free to improvise with your favorite veggies.
Swap option: Any kind of veggies or meat you have in the fridge will work — just toss them in! This is a great lunch or side dish. A variation on the dish, called omurice, is to make omelets and wrap the eggs around the fried rice like a burrito.
Technique tip: Kimchi can stain your cutting board and the smell. It has a habit of lingering, too. To avoid this. put the kimchi in a bowl and use kitchen shears to cut it into smaller pieces.
Cook the rice according to package instructions.2.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.3.
Reduce the heat to medium, add the carrots and garlic, and cook, stirring continuously, until the carrots are just softened, about 2 to 3 minutes.4.
Add the mushrooms, zucchini, two-thirds of the scallions and the kimchi, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.5.
Add the rice and fried chicken, breaking up the rice with a wooden spoon and combining it with the other ingredients.6.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is hot, about 5 minutes.7.
Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the fried rice into four bowls and top each with a fried egg and the remaining scallions.
