Quick & Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

I am so back logged with my recipe posts. I made this months ago when I was trying my hand in preparing Chinese Food at home on the regular. I haven’t been making Chinese dishes as much lately as I need to make a trip to Chinatown and get me an authentic cheapie wok. Having a wok pan will make this dish so much easier to prepare, nonetheless you can also use a non-stick frying pan…

What you will need…

Chicken-Fried -Rice2

8 oz boneless & skinless chicken breasts, cubed

1 tbsp minced garlic

1/2 cup onions, chopped

1/4 cup of scallions, chopped

1 egg

1 cup frozen peas & carrots

5 tbsp lite soy sauce

3 tbsp vegetable oil

1 cup rice, preferably cooked a day in advance and refrigerated

Season chicken to taste and set aside. I used adobo, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.

Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in the middle…

Chicken-Fried -Rice6

Toss in carrots & peas and stir fry for about 3 minutes…

Chicken-Fried -Rice7

Add your egg and scramble. This is where a wok is better because even in my non-stick pan my egg sticks to the vegetable bits ( I eventually switched pans)

Add in rice and soy sauce and stir until everything is evenly coated.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
