Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken about 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I recommend the slow cooker recipe below this one)
  • 3 cups cooked rice (if possible use day old rice)
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots thawed
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 2-3 Tbsp soy sauce to taste
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp chopped green onions optional but recommended

Instructions

  • Cook chicken using desired method, and shred.
  • Preheat a large skillet (or wok if you have one) over medium heat. Add sesame oil to the pan. Add onion and peas and carrots and saute until tender.
  • Scoot the onion, peas and carrots to one side of the skillet, and pour the beaten eggs onto the other side. Using a wooden spoon, scramble the eggs. Once they're cooked, stir it all together.
  • Add the rice, soy sauce and chicken to the skillet. Stir the rice and veggie mixture until heated through. Before serving, sprinkle with green onions if desired.
