Make perfect rice every time with this easy and proven recipe to cook rice in the oven.
Bake 23-25 minutes until the rice is tender but not mushy and all the liquid should be absorbed. If it's not done, bake for another 2 to 4 minutes. While rice is cooking prep all ingredients for the fried rice and set aside.
When rice is done turn it out onto a large tray and spread in a even layer to cool.
Add 4-5 cups cooked, cooled rice. Stir and toss, until the rice is pale brown, toasted, and has a lightly chewy texture, about three minutes, adding oil as needed.
