Chicken Fried Rice

I am bringing to you another easy Chinese take-out recipe that can easily be made in 15 minutes. If you take a few shortcuts (such as boil-in-bag rice, rotisserie chicken and frozen veggies) this delicious dish comes together in no time.

Recipe yields 4 servings

2 bags of brown rice
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
2 tbsp green onions
2-3 tbsp sesame oil
1 lb chicken breast (or a Rotisserie chicken, shredded - you can also swap in pork or shrimp for variety)
1 large egg
3-4 tbsp soy sauce

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet or wok. Add the frozen vegetables and sliced green onions. Saute on medium heat until soft and tender.

If you are cooking your own chicken (or pork or shrimp) saute it in a pan with 1 tablespoon of oil.

Following the instructions on the box, prepare the rice in a pot of boiling water.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon of oil. Create a space in the center of the skillet and pour in the egg. Scramble it and mix it together with the vegetables.

Add the cookie rice and shredded chicken (or any other protein you may want to use) into the pan. Add in the soy sauce and mix it all together to incorporate all ingredients with each other.

I served mine alongside my Take-out Fake-out: Chicken and Broccoli. If you add chicken, pork or shrimp, it can also be a meal in itself. Enjoy!
