The Easiest and Best Fried Rice Recipe

I have made Fried Rice and Chicken Fried Rice several times.  This recipe is by far the easiest and most delicious recipe I have ever found for this dish.  Last weekend I just made Fried rice without chicken for a side dish.  It lasted for quite a few meals and was excellent!!  This is also on my Pinterest Board

Better-Than-Takeout Chicken Fried Rice
*4 cups rice, prepared
*1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked (slow cooked teriyaki chicken is recommended)
*1 cup peas & carrots, frozen ( I used corn instead of the carrots)
*1 white onion, chopped
*2 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 eggs
*3 tablespoons sesame oil
*1/4 cup soy sauce

1.  Prepare rice according to package instructions to yield 4 cups cooked rice.
2.  Heat sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat.
3.  Add onion, garlic, peas, and carrots.  Stir fry until tender.
4.  Crack eggs into pan and scramble, mixing throughout vegetables.
5.  Add rice, chicken, and soy sauce to pan.  Stir in soy sauce and remove from heat.

When I reheated this dish for the next dinner, I did it with a bit of sesame oil in the pan heated.  Then just added a little soy sauce.

Farmers Market......that time of year.

Now is the time of year to save some cash and eat healthy.  Do most of your grocery shopping at your local Farmers Market or Produce store.  
By far cheaper side dishes and completely healthy.  All you need to have is a bottle of good olive oil, fresh cracked pepper, and sea salt to roast just about any vegetable you pick up.

Roasted carrots, green beans, the list is endless.  Much better for you than anything in a box or can.
