When our friends over at Fox Home Entertainment asked if we were interested in hosting a fun Kung Fu Panda Party to celebrate the upcoming release of Kung Fu Panda 3 in theaters at the end of this month and the dvd re-releases of Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2, we jumped at the opportunity.

Kung Fu Panda Party Ideas {A Chinese Fried Rice Recipe and MORE!}

Since the kids wanted to do a Kung Fu Panda marathon with both movies, we decided to kick it all off with a Po inspired lunch that included my easy Chinese Fried Rice.

You can choose to make this a simple egg fried rice, chicken fried rice, veggie fried rice or mixed. I made a mixed fried rice because I had some leftover pepper beef in the fridge that got added to the mix!

Chinese Fried Rice
Cuisine: Chinese
Servings: 4 -6
Author: Marina J (Mommy Snippets)
Ingredients
  • 3 cups of pre-cooked jasmine rice.
  • 2 cups of raw chicken /beef / a mix of both-cut into small nuggets or strips
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 red onion -thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch spring onion- cut fine
  • 2 cups raw veggies- I used a mix of carrots peas, spinach (I know not something you will find in Chinese fried rice dishes but in my house yes!) and green bell peppers-chop fine/into small pieces
  • 2 tbsps organic non GMO soy sauce
  • Pepper- 2 tbsps or more based on taste preference.
  • Salt-to flavor and taste
  • Sesame seed oil- 2 to 3 tbsps
Instructions
  1. In a large wok or pan, heat the oil for 2-3 minutes and then throw in the sliced onions.
  2. Saute for 2-3 minutes and then add the soy sauce, chicken and/or beef nuggets.
  3. Flavor the poultry and/or meat with 1 tbsp of pepper and salt.
  4. Cook till done. (I like making sure I've cooked this through properly so leave it cooking for about 10-12 mins, on a medium flame.)
  5. In a separate pan, scramble the 4 eggs and season with pepper + salt and set aside.
  6. Once the chicken and/or beef is cooked through, throw in the veggies and spring onions. Add to this the remaining pepper and season this with salt.
  7. Saute and cook this mix on a medium-high flame for 5 minutes. (The veggies need to be lightly cooked and crunchy. Don't cook them all the way through.)
  8. Add in the scrambled eggs and rice.
  9. Gently mix all the contents in the wok well and set aside till hungry tummies at the dinner table are ready for some delicious mixed fried rice.

Besides great food, every Kung Fu Panda party also needs table decor (I know, isn’t that Po plush adorable?),
