Easy Chicken Fried Rice

This recipe is from Iowa Girl Eats …because I’ve got to give props to a fellow IOWA GIRL! The only thing I changed is…I didn’t have Sesame Oil or Wok Oil…and I didn’t want to go buy any, because I’m being lazy. 🙂 So I used Olive Oil.

This recipe is from Iowa Girl Eats …because I’ve got to give props to a fellow IOWA GIRL! The only thing I changed is…I didn’t have Sesame Oil or Wok Oil…and I didn’t want to go buy any, because I’m being lazy. 🙂 So I used Olive Oil.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups prepared rice
  • 1 chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper (could use leftover cooked chicken)
  • ½ cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (I used 1 TBS minced garlic in a jar instead)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons sesame or wok oil, divided (I actually just used Olive Oil, shame on me)
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
Instructions
  1. Whisk egg with 1 teaspoon oil in a small dish then set aside.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add seasoned chicken then stir fry until cooked through and remove to a plate. (If using pre-cooked chicken, skip this step.)
  4. Heat remaining teaspoon oil in the wok then add frozen mixed vegetables and green onions.
  5. Stir fry until tender, about 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
  6. Push vegetables to the side of the wok then add egg and sesame oil mixture into the center and scramble.
  7. Add cooked chicken, rice, and soy sauce to wok then toss well to combine.
