Chicken Fried Rice

Makes 4 servings Start to Finish: 30 minutes

“This beats any Chinese restaurant.  It’s so good – one of those “fight over left-overs” meals.”

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts – cut into bite sized pieces & salted

4 eggs – slightly beaten

3 cups rice – cooked

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger -or 1 T fresh ginger root

3 cloves garlic – minced

1 cup frozen mixed vegetables – petite cut

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1)  Heat oil in a large skillet.  Cook chicken on a medium heat until no longer pink.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.

2)  Push chicken to the side of the side of the skillet and pour in eggs.  Stir eggs until cooked.  Add vegetables, rice, soy sauce, and seasonings – in that order stirring about 1 minute after each addition.  Continue stirring and cooking over medium heat until combined and rice and vegetables are heated.

Tip – Fried rice works best with cold rice, but if you don’t have time – fresh, warm rice will work.
