Chicken fried Rice & Crab Rangoon :-)

Yum Yum and dem some! I really wanted to expand my culinary palate and try out cooking some more Asian dishes so decided to try to make chicken fried rice and crab rangoons. Both of these recipes were super easy .The rice was good not 100% like the local Chinese joint , more like 85% but still yummy. The crab Rangoon's omg so so so good, taste 110% authentic

Chicken fried Rice
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 1/2 pounds cooked, cubed chicken meat
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 2 green onion, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup fresh pea pods, halved
  • 1/2 large green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups cooked white rice (make sure rice is cold)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup frozen sweet peas


  1. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat and butter. Add onion and saute until soft, then add chicken and 2 tablespoons soy sauce and stir-fry for 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Stir in carrots, green onion, red bell pepper, pea pods and green bell pepper and stir-fry another 5 minutes. Then add rice and stir thoroughly.
  3. Finally, stir in scrambled eggs and 1/3 cup soy sauce, heat through and serve hot.

Crab Rangoon Recipe


1- 8oz pack of Philly cream cheese
1- 6oz can of Crab meat
2 - green scallions cut small
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
pack of won ton wraps
small bowl of warm water

This recipe was really easy , however the hardest part about making these are folding them.
  • Mix all ingredient in large bowl.
  • Place small amount of mix in won ton
  • with finger apply water along the bottom of the won ton wrap then fold the top over to seal
  • After triangle is made with the won ton, push the middle part in with thumb and add water to left corner of won ton.
  • Fold over the two corners. Finished product will look like the picture if done correctly.
  • Fry in vegetable oil until golden brown. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or duck sauce. Enjoy!
I have added this video that shows step by step directions for the crab Rangoon's and the recipe I used. These are super easy once you get the hang of it and turned out so good. These were easy but takes about 1 hr to make the whole batch (around 34 Rangoon's) Another thing to remember when sealing the corners make sure you press down firmly to ensure that there are no spaces where the mix will pop out when frying.

That looks so good. And the salmon burger and sweet potato fries, Yum!
But I will use a whole wheat bun when I make it, carbs are my friend.
