Chicken Fried Rice
Chicken Fried Rice can be made in no time at all when you use already cooked chicken (I used rotisserie chicken) and leftover cooked rice. This tastes just like it came from the restaurant and is much cheaper than buying it. When I buy a rotisserie chicken I eat the dark meat and freeze each chicken breast half separately to use with recipes like this one. When I make a meal with rice, I double the amount of rice I need and use the leftovers to make meals like this so much quicker. Don’t be afraid of this recipe, it really is simple to make.
In a large frying pan or wok
over medium low heat,
add the oil.
Add the onion and peas with carrots.
Cook the vegetables until the
onion is almost tender.
Add the cooked chicken to the vegetables.
Gently combine the chicken with the
vegetables cooking until the chicken is hot.
Push the chicken and vegetables to one side.
Add the whisked egg and use a spatula to
cook the egg breaking it up into small pieces.
Combine the egg, chicken and vegetables
and push them to the side of the pan or wok.
Add the cooked rice spreading it out to fill
the rest of the pan. Cook the rice just until hot.
Gently combined all of the
ingredients in the pan.
Add the soy sauce and toss to combined.
