EASY CHICKEN FRIED RICE

Easy Chicken Fried Rice - Butter With A Side of BreadThis is one of my favorite quick & easy dinners and the good news is- the rest of my family enjoys it too! It’s one of my “leftovers” dinners because I usually make it with chicken and rice leftover from another meal. The rice can even be stored in the freezer until you’re ready to use it! Just defrost it and it’s ready to go. A couple of the ingredients are flexible- I like it with more egg and less soy sauce. Taste it though and adjust to your family’s liking! I usually serve this with store bought egg rolls or pot stickers on the side.

Easy Chicken Fried Rice

  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 6 cups cooked, cold white rice
  • 1 12-oz bag frozen peas & carrot vegetable mix, cooked
  • 3-4 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once butter is melted, add in onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Add in eggs, one at a time, stirring before adding another one. I always add 4 eggs- I like ours with a lot of egg! Once egg is pretty much cooked, add in chicken and cook, stirring often, for another 2-3 minutes. Add in rice and stir to combine. Add in vegetables. Cook, stirring often for another 5-6 minutes, until rice is hot. Add in soy sauce and stir to combine, cooking an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from heat. Drizzle sesame oil over rice and stir once more. Serve hot!
