Leftover Turkey Fried Rice, Japengo Maui Style

Add your leftover turkey to this fantastic fried rice recipe from the Japengo restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa in Maui.
By Michelle M. Winner

With the addition of your leftover turkey, the famous “Japengo Fried Rice” recipe is fit for a king.

It’s not so much that we can’t stand another bite of leftover turkey, it’s that  when turkey is  added to Japengo’s famous ” Japengo Fried Rice” recipe, it makes this simple recipe, well, tastier.

Fried rice lovers love that you can add most anything to the base of chilled cooked rice, oyster sauce, garlic and ginger. This recipe is only a guideline. In fact the day I visited the  Japengo  restaurant on Maui, one of Japengo’s  chefs was set up in  Hyatt Regency Maui’s  expansive atrium lobby  “wok-ing  to order” the hotel guests’ own  ingredient combinations to make individual tastes of  fried rice.
