chicken fried rice

Recipe from Iowa Girl Eats

This recipe is dairy free

  • 2 cups prepared rice (I used regular brown rice)
  • 1 chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper (could use leftover cooked chicken)
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons sesame or wok oil, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce

  1. Whisk egg with 1 teaspoon oil in a small dish then set aside.chicken fried rice recipe
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add seasoned chicken then stir fry until cooked through and remove to a plate. (If using pre-cooked chicken, skip this step.)
  3. Heat remaining teaspoon oil in the wok then add frozen mixed vegetables and green onions. Stir fry until tender, about 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 30 more seconds. Push vegetables to the side of the wok then add egg and sesame oil mixture into the chicken fried rice recipecenter and scramble.
  4. Add cooked chicken, rice, and soy sauce to wok then toss well to combine.

This recipe was beyond easy and delicious. I thought it lacked the take-out flavor (maybe it was the brown rice), but overall, this recipe passed. I paired it with my orange chicken and egg rolls. Yum!
