CAN I  USE SHRIMP OR HAM INSTEAD OF CHICKEN?

YES! If you use shrimp, I would use smaller shrimp. And if you are using ham, I would use between 1-2 cups of diced ham.

WHAT KIND OF RICE TO USE FOR FRIED RICE RECIPE?

I like to use the garden vegetable ready rice because I’m all about making dinner as easy as possible. But you can use regular long-grain rice, jasmine rice or brown rice. Just make sure you cook the rice the day before you plan on making fried rice.
