Chinese special popular Schezwan chicken fried rice made with stir-fried chicken, eggs, vegetables and cooked rice, sauteed in high temperature along with Schezwan special sauces and spices. Learn with video and stepwise pictures.

Making a restaurant style Schezwan chicken fried rice at home is not a big deal if all the special spices are used properly. You may get the temptation to use the readymade Schezwan sauce available in the market. Of course, you can use that readymade sauce to make a quick fix Schezwan fried rice or noodles. That method is useful if you are in a hurry. If you use readymade sauce, just saute the veggies, mix sauce, add salt, pepper, cooked rice, combine in high flame and it’s done.

But in this post, I showed you the traditional method of making the Schezwan fried rice without readymade Schezwan sauce. Actually, this method is not very difficult because of the easily available ingredients.

Moreover, as I already mentioned in my other Chinese food posts, always cook Chinese foods in high fire by sauteing quickly. Also, I never use Ajinomoto(or any taste enhancer) and if you really want, add just pinch of it. You may like to check out the other Chinese recipes from my blog.

Furthermore, as you may know, for noodles cut the vegetables in julienne style (thin lengthy strips) and for fried rice, it is advisable to chop them finely.

Because we cook veggies only by sauteing in oil in high fire and small cut pieces are easy to cook quickly. Ideally, Chinese foods take very less time to prepare except for the extensive chopping time.
