6. Lower heat to medium and add soy sauce to taste.

7. Add scallions.

Note:
As you add each ingredient, add small amounts of chicken broth and stir constantly. Be careful not to add too much chicken broth because this will make the rice too soft and soup like. Each batch takes a minimum of 20 minutes to cook. Scallions should be added after the rice is completely cooked.

Personal Notes:
Note:
As you add rice to hot oil it helps if you wear long kitchen gloves to keep from getting splashed with hot oil. Also, only open lid at an angle when you put rice in oil to keep splattering to a minimum.
