KID NOTE: The chicken and fried rice were huge hits. Salad, not so much.
VEGETARIAN TIP: Replace the chicken firm tofu. Reduce the cooking time.
GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Use tamari instead of soy sauce.
Can I use boneless skinless chicken?
Yes, they will most likely cook faster than bone-in chicken. So, be careful not to over cook. Once they’re cooked, transfer them to a plate and let the sauce continue to thicken.
I used chicken breasts on accident — didn’t read the recipe carefully enough and failed to buy the bone-in pieces. It worked fine; I did take the chicken out early so it wouldn’t overcook. The sauce tasted great. The fried rice was possibly the best I’ve made at home. I used the butter, and it was just a tiny bit sweet. Next time, I will try the bone-in chicken … I feel like that might add some richness to that dish.
