Homemade Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Today I am sharing my homemade chicken fried rice recipe with you. This isn't your typical recipe... you do NOT need to follow any of these directions "by the book!" In fact, I encourage you to take this and make it your own. Add your own twist!  Having never made the same fried rice twice, I can tell you with absolute certainty that this is a super flexible dish.  This is a great way to use up leftover rice, meat, and veggies at the end of a week. I've also made this as a side dish, just serve the protein on the side!

I hope you enjoy this video. Let me know if you try this recipe out, or if you have your own version!




Ingredients
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 tbs oil (something with a high smoke point)
2 cups cooked rice (day old rice works best!)
1 cup protein (cooked shrimp, beef, chicken, tofu, etc.)
1/4 cup green onions
1 egg, cracked and beat with a fork
1/4 cup frozen peas and carrots (or any veggies you have on hand!)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
pepper to taste

Directions
Prepare all ingredients ahead of time so they are close by and ready to go. In a large skillet or wok, heat oil and red pepper flakes at a medium high heat. Add onions and veggies, saute until soft. Then add egg, cook until scrambled. Add rice, soy sauce, chicken, and pepper. Stir fry together for about 3-5 minutes, until desired doneness.  Serve hot.
