Chicken Fried Rice Takeout Recipe Makeover

Chicken Fried Rice

Along with iridescent sweet-and-sour pork, fried rice is one of those comforting Chinese-American hybrids that populates every Chinese take-out menu in the country. Almost everyone who loves fried rice is drawn to its salty, greasy goodness. The problem is the salty, greasy part, because underneath is a reasonable rice and lean-protein dish, flecked with vegetables. Our riff uses a bit of lower-sodium soy, then boosts the savor with sweet-salty hoisin sauce and fiery chili paste. Sodium savings: about 60%. Comfort factor: still high.
