I really need to start being careful about pictures I post of my food on Facebook. It always leads to someone asking for the recipe. haha! This one was no different. The only problem is, a lot of times my mom just throws things together and then doesn’t remember exactly how she does it. We’ve tried to recapture this one. I hope it works!
Chicken Fried Rice
One of those fail-proof one-skillet dinners that will fill you up and make you all happy inside.
1½ C. dry rice + 3 C. water
3 carrots, peeled & diced
½ large onion, diced (or green onion)
2-3 C. shredded cabbage
4 T. sesame oil
4 T. soy sauce
1 packet “I forgot the brand name” fried rice seasoning mix
(No worries. We later found out it was “Sunbird”)
1 lb. chicken tenders, cooked and shredded
Cook rice in steamer or boil on the stove. Remove from pan and place in shallow glass dish. Refrigerate until cool.
Spray wok or large skillet with cooking spray. Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil in wok or skillet. Stir-fry carrots, onion, and cabbage for 3-4 minutes. Push to sides. Add 2 more tablespoons sesame oil, stir fry the rice, mix the vegetables in, add the seasoning packet and soy sauce. Mix well. Add chicken and stir well. Eat.
Easily serves 4, maybe more.
