Chicken Fried Rice

I love Chinese food.  There is this little restaurant in this town where we shop now and then that serves this fantastic House Special.  It's rice with everything but the kitchen sink. So when we make this at home, it feels just like eating out, only we're in the comfort of our own home.  And we even buy the little Chinese fortune cookies to add to the experience.

Ahh, there really is nothing like cooking at home.

Chicken Fried Rice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces boneless chicken breast, diced into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 can (6.5oz) sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 4 egg whites or 3 whole eggs

  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat,  Add chicken, heat until cooked, about 5 minutes. Place the cooked chicken in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Add the onions, mushrooms, carrots, garlic, and ginger to the pan, turn the heat to high, and cook until the onions are translucent.  Add onion mixture to chicken bowl.
  • Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray, and the eggs. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until eggs have almost set. Add the rice, stir to combine, then add the chicken and vegetables. Cook another two minutes, until the eggs have fully cooked. 

It's ready to eat!  Just put in a bowl or plate and add your favorite soy sauce on top =) This meal is so comfort foody and delicious!  We make it on special days and occasions.
