Chicken Fried Rice

imageThis is one of my favorite “fix it and have food forever” meals. I make this when I know the next few days will be busy and leftovers will be the thing that gets me through without starving. I love, love, love Chinese food and I’m pretty bad at making it, so when I found this super easy recipe I was excited to say the least. The original recipe is from Rachel Schultz…she just keeps popping up as a source of awesome recipes for me!


  • 4 cups rice, prepared
  • 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked (she recommends using slow cooker teriyaki chicken)
  • 1 cup peas and carrots, frozen
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce


1. Prepare rice according to package instructions to yield 4 cups cooked rice.

2. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat.

3. Add onion, garlic, peas and carrots. Stir fry until tender.

4. Crack eggs into pan and scramble, mixing throughout vegetables.

5. Add rice, chicken, and soy sauce to pan. Stir in soy sauce and remove from heat.
