EASY CHICKEN FRIED RICE RECIPE
Chicken Fried Rice Recipe is a perfect weeknight dinner idea! Simple to make and trust me, homemade fried rice tastes SO much better. Instructions for how to make fried rice using simple ingredients.
- 3 TBSP butter
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 3-4 eggs large
- 1 cup diced cooked chicken
- 6 cups cold white rice cooked, day old
- 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!
