Chicken Fried Rice is very easy to put together at the same time one could easily go wrong especially when it comes to the moisture content in the Rice, the more reason why it is best to use the rice that has been cooked a day before for this recipe, this is because the longer the Rice stays, the more dehydrated it becomes, so that when you stir fry the Rice and add the soy sauce, it still stays nice and not mushy.

You can still use a freshly cooked rice but it is advisable you allow the Rice to cool completely to room temperature you can even put it in the fridge to hasten the cooling process.
