Simple and Easy Chicken Fried Rice
No need to order takeout... make your own chicken fried rice that tastes about 1000x better!
The Chunky Chef
about 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I recommend the slow cooker recipe below this one)
cooked rice (if possible
use day old rice)
small white onion
frozen peas and carrots
chopped green onions
optional but recommended
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.
