  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced stemmed shiitakes
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine or dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 3 cups cold cooked long grain white rice
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Thinly sliced scallions, for serving


Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat and then swirl in 1 tablespoon of the oil. When the oil begins to smoke, add the egg and swirl the skillet to make a flat egg pancake that's only half set, about 10 seconds; scoop out onto a plate.

Step 2

Add the chicken to the skillet, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining tablespoon oil, then add the shiitakes and cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the ginger, Shaoxing wine, soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir until the ginger is tender, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add the rice, stirring to break up any clumps, and spread it out in the skillet. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Return the egg, chicken and any juices to the skillet and cook, stirring and breaking up the egg, to mix it in thoroughly, about 1 minute. Season with additional salt if needed. Drizzle with the sesame oil, sprinkle with scallions and serve.
