4 cups overnight rice
1 tablespoon fish sauce

3 dashes white pepper powder
1 skinless and boneless chicken breast (cut into small cubes)
1 Chinese lap cheong/sausage (diced into small pieces)
1/2 cup baby shrimp
1/2 cup green peas
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
2 eggs (light beaten)
1 small piece of salted fish (diced into small pieces)
Method:Heat up a wok with two tablespoons of oil. Add salted fish and fry until aromatic, set aside. Using the same oil, saute the garlic until aromatic. Add in chicken, baby shrimp, Chinese sausage and peas and stir fry until they are half cooked. Season with salt and continue to stir-fry until they are 80% cooked. Add in the overnight rice and stir well with the ingredients. Add in soy sauce, fish sauce, sweet soy sauce, white pepper powder and continue to fry the rice for a couple of minutes.
Make a “well” in the middle of the wok and pour the beaten eggs in the well. Wait for 30 seconds and then cover the “egg well” with rice. Leave it for 30 seconds and continue to stir-fry the fried rice so the eggs form small pieces and mix well with the fried rice. Add in the fried salted fish and do some quick stirs, dish out and serve the Chinese fried rice hot.
