Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Do you have nights when you get home later than expected? Or you realize that you forgot to add one main ingredient to your shopping list so you can't make what you had planned for dinner? Yes, it happens to me too. That is when it becomes Chicken Fried Rice night!

This is really easy to throw together. Now when chicken breasts are on sale, I cook up some of the chicken breasts, cube them, and then freeze them. So then I have easy makings for chicken fried rice, chicken tacos, or other casseroles. You can use leftover chicken or frozen cooked shrimp in this recipe too. The rice works better if it is cold. I usually have some leftover white rice in refrigerator but you can just make rice and toss it in hot.

Please note that the measurements below are estimates since I usually just toss in what looks good. I don't actually use a recipe.

1 egg
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound cubed cooked chicken
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 bag of frozen peas or frozen peas & carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery or green peppers (optional)
3 cups cooked white rice
1/3 cup soy sauce or Soy Vay Veri Veri teriyaki sauce

Spray your skillet with cooking spray. Scramble your egg and set aside. Over medium heat, add chopped onion to skillet and saute until soft. Add soy sauce, chicken, and frozen peas. Stir fry for about 3 to 4 minutes. If you are adding the celery and/or green peppers then put them in now and stir fry for about 2 minutes. Then add rice and the 1/3 cup soy sauce. Mix thoroughly. Stir in the scrambled egg and stir fry until hot.
