Chicken fried rice is a dish that originated in Chinese cuisine and is now commonly found in many Asian restaurants and takeout menus. It typically consists of cooked rice that is stir-fried in a wok or frying pan with sliced chicken, vegetables such as onions, peas, and carrots, scrambled eggs, and various sauces and seasonings.

The dish is made by first cooking the chicken and vegetables in oil until they are tender, then pushing them to the side of the wok or pan to make room for the beaten eggs, which are scrambled until cooked. The cooked rice is then added to the pan and stirred together with the other ingredients. Soy sauce, oyster sauce, and other seasonings are added to the mixture and stirred in until the rice is evenly coated and flavored.
