In wok or large saucepan, heat half of the vegetable oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, stirring, until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to warm plate; set aside.

In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook white parts of green onions, garlic and ginger, stirring, for 1 minute. Add pineapple, red pepper and carrot; cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender-crisp, about 4 minutes.

Add rice, reserved chicken, soy and oyster sauces to pan; cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside and juices run clear when pierced with fork.

Push fried rice to edge of pan. Make well in centre; cook eggs, stirring, until creamy, about 2 minutes. Mix eggs with rice. Remove wok from heat; mix in sesame oil, and sriracha (if using). Sprinkle with remaining green onions, cashews and cilantro (if using).

Test Kitchen Tip: Cold leftover cooked rice is better for fried rice than freshly prepared hot rice. The rice dries slightly as it cools, and the grains don’t stick together in the pan.
