Author's Notes

Use cooked rice that has been in the fridge for at least overnight (and up to 5 days). Break up the clumps of rice, then let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before stir-frying.

If you don't have cooked rice and want to make the dish that same night, cook the rice with one cup less water than what you would normally use. Fluff up the rice with a chopstick or fork then allow it to sit uncovered until you are ready to use it.

Substitute kecap manis with 2 Tbsp dark soy sauce plus 1 Tbsp brown sugar. You can also substitute shrimp for chicken breast or thigh if you wish, or a combination of chicken and shrimp.
