Fried rice is a common staple in American Chinese cuisine especially the type sold in Chinese take out.
Brown rice is a good source of magnesium, which helps to maintain proper blood pressure. It also contains a fair amount of fiber, iron, niacin, thiamine, and vitamin B6.
Egg whites are very low in calories, high in protein, and contain no fat or cholesterol.
My favorite rice to use is brown Basmati rice. You can find it now in most supermarkets. I bought it at Trader Joe’s. They also sell a package of cooked brown rice.
Trader Joe’s sells packages of cooked, sliced or chopped, chicken breasts that are really tasty. The plain chicken breasts or teriyaki chicken breasts work best for this dish. If you buy a cooked chicken from the supermarket, be sure to remove the skin before chopping and adding to this dish.
