35 of the Best Recipes to Serve with Fried Rice

Wondering what to serve with fried rice?

Here are some of the best recipes to serve with fried rice. These easy recipes are better than takeout from your favorite Chinese restaurant.

Instant Pot Orange Chicken Recipe

Chinese fried rice is a classic dish that everyone loves ordering at their favorite Chinese restaurant.

The classic fried rice recipe consists of white rice, green onions, diced carrots, peas, and fried egg.

I like adding seasonings like black pepper, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Some people like adding small pieces of diced meat or chicken.

It's a great way to use leftover rice. Some people “health it up” by using brown rice.

You can make it with cold rice or newly cooked hot rice and fresh veggies. Cook it up in a large skillet or large wok.

It's a great recipe to heat up and enjoy the next day, too.
