Chicken fried rice is a healthy, one dish meal. Like all fried rice dishes, Chicken fried rice tastes best when using leftover cooked rice.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 cups cold cooked rice
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken (or substitute cooked turkey, etc.), chopped
  • 2 eggs (more if desired)

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • Seasonings (add according to taste):

  • Oil for stir-frying, as needed

PREPARATION:

Beat the eggs lightly with chopsticks, add a dash of salt (Add a bit of oyster sauce if desired).

Chop the chicken meat and dice the onion and green onion.  
Heat wok and add oil.

When oil is ready, pour 1/2 of the egg mixture into the wok and cook over medium heat, turning over once.  Cook the other half the same way.  Cut the egg into thin strips, and save for later.

Stir-fry the onion on high heat for a few moments, remove and set aside. Do the same for the green peas.
