Preparing the dish:

Prepare rice as you usual do with garlic, water and salt. Beat the eggs slightly, add 1 tablespoon of milk, season them and fry them in a pan with oil. Once the omelet is ready, remove it from the pan and cut into 1 cm (½ inch).

Fry the hot dog over medium heat in a pan without oil until cooked but not crispy. Remove from the pan and drain it on paper towels. In the same oil of the bacon fry the garlic and the ginger. Increase the heat and add the Chinese onions and peppers.

Cook a few minutes. Then add the soy sauce, chicken, omelet cut into pieces and Ajinomoto. Mix all. If it’s too dry, add 1 tablespoon of boiling water.

Finally add the rice and mix well. Serve instantly when it is very hot.
