Your new go-to weeknight meal that packs in vegetables… and a little bacon.
Fried rice is a go-to super fast dinner that kids and adults love equally. This version is super garlicky and is filled with crispy bacon and crunchy broccoli to make things a liiiitle healthier. But here's the best thing about fried rice: it's super adaptable! You can swap the bacon for mushrooms if you're vegetarian, add some eggs, or pack in even more veggies, like peppers or snap peas. Pro tip: Use leftover rice instead of fresh-cooked rice, since it is drier and will get crispier in the skillet.
1 fresh hot chili, minced (seeded if you don’t like it too hot)
3 cups broccoli florets, cut into 1/2-inch florets
½ cup chopped scallions
4 cups cooked rice
Combine the broth and soy sauce in a glass. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crisp and rendered, 9-10 minutes. Remove the bacon from the skillet with a slotted spoon, leaving behind any drippings you have in the skillet.
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet, then add the garlic and chilies. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the broccoli to the skillet, then add ½ cup of the chicken broth mixture, raise the heat medium-high, and cook until bright-green and tender crisp, 2-3 minutes.
Add the rice to the skillet along with the bacon and any drippings collected in the bowl, most of the scallions, and the remaining ¼ cup chicken broth mixture. Cook, stirring, until liquid evaporates and rice starts to crisp, 6–8 minutes. Garnish with more scallions and serve hot.
