Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken fried rice should not be something you only eat out of a box that was delivered to your door. With a few shortcuts it's uber simple to make at home.

1 lb chicken cut into bite sized pieces
6 cups of cold cooked rice - must be cold
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup peas
2 eggs
stir fry sauce to taste

I personally think it's nice to brown your chicken when preparing it for fried rice. That way it stands up to the rest of the dish. Most of the local place around here do not and I find the chicken gets lost in all the other tastes. With that said start by browning your chicken. When the chicken is about 85% done add the onion and carrots. Cook these for a few minutes. Add the eggs to the pan and scramble them. Once the eggs are done mix them in with the rest of the ingredients. Add the peas then add the cold rice and the stir fry sauce. You can add a much or as little of the stir fry sauce as you like. Mix everything together and bring it to temperature. Eat & Enjoy!

Bon Appetit...
