Chicken Fried Rice

I’ve always wanted to know how to make fried rice so I decided to teach myself! :)

So I did what every other regular person did and hopped on Pinterest and looked for a quick and easy recipe. Finally found one and got to prepping! I did make some changes though, so I will tell you what I did different.
I got the idea of the recipe from
However I did my own pictures because I got a new camera for Christmas and who wouldn’t want to take pictures of their food?! :P
Okay so here we go….

What I used
=2 cups prepared rice (I used brown minute rice)
-2 chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper (could use leftover cooked chicken) My husband prefers more meat to rice ratio.
-1/2 cup frozen mixed peppers (you can use veggies but I didn’t have any at the moment)
-(You can add these but I didn’t) 2 green onions, chopped
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 egg
-3 teaspoons sesame or wok oil (I will show you where to put each tsp)
-2 Tablespoons soy sauce (or more to taste)
Prep took me about 10 mins… Here is everything laid out.

IMG_0849 2 Chicken Breasts chopped up into bite size chunks
IMG_0850 1/2 cup of frozen mixed bell peppers ( you can use veggies)
IMG_0851 I also added some bean sprouts
IMG_0852 And here is the 2 TBLSP of Soy Sauce, 1 egg with 1 TSP of Sesame Oil whisked together and 1/4 cup of water chestnuts (for that little crunch).
IMG_0856 IMG_0865 IMG_0874 Drop 1 TSP of the sesame oil into the Wok, take the chicken and cook it through and brown it a little then set it aside on a plate.
IMG_0866 So once you move the chicken out take 1 TSP of Sesame Oil and toss it in the Wok. Then add your Veggies.
Cook it down till the veggies are translucent and softer…then make a WHOLE in the middle of the veggies and pour your egg sesame oil mixture in the middle.
Cook the egg all the way through then add in your chicken and rice , pour in the 2 TBLSP of soy sauce in and mix all that yummy goodness together!
