Can you make it ahead of time?

I like to serve this rice fairly soon after it’s made so it’s nice and fresh, but leftovers will keep well in the fridge, in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Leftover chicken fried rice can be reheated slowly on the stovetop to serve. when reheating, I like to add a tablespoon or two of water to loosen the mixture back up, as rice can dry out a little when sitting.

What’s the best rice to use?

I like to use a long grain white rice for this recipe, Jasmine or Basmati both work well. Because the rice is cooked separately, you can make this recipe with brown or wild rice if you prefer. Just cook it as per the directions on the package.

Do you have to use day old rice?

A lot of recipes for fried rice require to use old rice as this helps to prevent it from getting mushy. I find, that as long as the rice is cold when you add it to the Crockpot then you will get good results.

You can of course use leftover cooked rice if you have that on hand.

  1. Crockpot Chicken Fried Rice Recipe - Easy Chicken Recipes (16)Amy says

    Ok! I love this recipe, but what can we do about the sodium levels? 1000 mg for a serving is high, but 2000 mg is about a whole day’s serving of salt! I know the teriyaki and soy sauce are the main contributors to this! I would prefer not to use the less sodium versions if possible! Anyone know of any substitutes? Thanks

    After we removed the 4 tbsp of soy sauce the family loved it. The soy sauce overwhelmed any other flavor. They liked it with just teriyaki sauce. I left the soy sauce up to the diner, and everyone was happy. Very easy and highly recommend with reducing the amount of soy sauce.
