Sometimes a recipe is SO easy and SO simple that you really just can’t believe you ever paid someone and waited for them to deliver it to you. Y’all, this is that recipe. We had been craving Chinese food so I decided I’d try my hand at homemade chicken fried rice. I’d made it once before but had used frozen veggies and this time I wanted to switch it up. This was so good, it may have ruined takeout for me. I’d be sad if it wasn’t so easy!
- 4 oz skinless boneless chicken breast
- Teriyaki sauce
- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped green beans
- 3 cups cooked brown rice
- salt and pepper
- 1 oz olive oil
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- Cook chicken ahead of time - I cooked mine in the crockpot on low for four hours marinated in teriyaki sauce
- Cook rice as directed and set aside
- Heat oil in skillet and then add carrots and green beans.
- Let carrots and green beans cook for about 7-10 minutes.
- Add chicken, rice and soy sauce and cook while everything mixes together.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Traditionally, fried rice contains eggs but I hate eggs so there are no eggs here! If you don't share my same aversion you probably want to scramble an egg in the skillet before you add the rice.
