[Kids Corner] Olives and Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Olives and Chicken Fried Rice is a variation (or rather my interpretation) of a Thai dish which I had once at a  Thai Restaurant and I am in love with it since then. I tried to replicate it at home by guessing the ingredients and it came quite close to the one I had and my family enjoys it too.
Let me give you the kid's version of this recipe first and then will also tell you about my near-to-the-original version.
