Ingredients

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and dust with about 2 teaspoons of the cornstarch. Add to the hot oil and cook until browned and just cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  2. Heat another tablespoon of oil in the skillet. Dust the onion slices with cornstarch and cook in the hot oil until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove to the plate with the chicken. 
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add another tablespoon of oil. Add the shrimp paste, garlic and chiles. Cook about 1 minute, stirring. Add the fish sauce, brown sugar, tamarind, tomato paste and soy sauce. 
  4. Stir in the cooked rice and peas and carrots. Cook, stirring, about 5 minutes. Make a hole in the center and crack in the 2 eggs. Cook, stirring, until eggs are almost set. 
  5. Add the chicken, crispy onions and green onions to the pan. Continue to cook until the rice begins to get crispy in spots. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  6. If serving with fried eggs on top, fry the eggs in a separate pan until desired doneness. Serve rice with a fried egg on top and garnish with additional chopped green onions.
