Better Than Take Out Chicken Fried Rice

Better than take out chicken fried rice. I love, love, love good fried rice.  Not the dried out stuff that you often get in Chinese restaurants that you have to douse in sweet and sour sauce to eat, but the fresh, sticky, homemade kind filled with fresh vegetables and sweet pork or moist chicken.
