Chicken Fried Rice Without Using Oil

This is a simple fried rice anyone can do it. At campsite, you can use a Dutch Oven to prepare this dish. It will take about 20mins to prepare and there is no need to use any oil. Instead this fried rice we use the fats from the chicken thigh skin. If you notice most stalls who sells fried rice, they are very oily however when this dish was made the amount of chicken fats produce was just perfect for this dish. 

To some this dish might feel unhealthy as we rendered the oil from the chicken. However if you take one KFC drumstick, the amount of oil in that one drumstick is more than what we use here. In most Chinese cooking, to get the flavour out of a dish, most would use animal fats which creates an aromatic taste. If you are a person who takes skinless chicken then this dish is not for you. If you look at it in another way, this is rather a healthy meal.
