Recipe: Fried Rice

Every once in a while we get some Chinese take-out but we avoid purchasing the fried rice because of how costly it is.

Just last night I made some fried rice of our own and we all really liked the result - there weren't even any leftovers! Everyone liked it enough that I wanted to post it for safe keeping.

Here's the recipe:

Fried Rice

Cooked chicken
5 cups (or more) of day old cooked brown rice (or quinoa!)
Soy sauce
Worcestershire sauce
3 eggs, hormone and cage free
1/2 bag of frozen carrots and peas
Oil (I used grapeseed and olive oil)
Chopped green onion
1 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
Sesame seeds for garnish

First make sure you have some cooked chicken on hand. I had placed some chicken tenders in the crock pot yesterday morning.

Cut up the chicken and pour desired amount of soy sauce and about 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce over the chicken. Let sit while preparing everything else.

Crack eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. Heat about 2 Tbsp of oil in a large pan on med. heat. Lightly fry up the whipped eggs. Transfer eggs back to bowl - mash up into small pieces with a fork.

Add more oil to the pan. Turn heat to medium-high. Add rice, green onions and frozen vegetables to pan. Sprinkle rice with the 1 tsp of salt. Pour some more oil over the top of the rice. Allow the rice to fry - mixing rice around every now and then.

Once rice has become fried enough - pour desired amount of soy sauce and about 2 tsps of Worcestershire sauce over rice. Add meat and eggs to this mixture and stir.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

For us, this fried rice recipe is a keeper!
