Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice


Chinese Food is something we eat a lot and order to-go or delivered at home. And this homemade chicken fried rice sure beats what we order often. Ha! Of course, it is better!

This easy and quick chicken fried rice recipe is so filling and healthy (more protein as you noticed) with a few basic ingredients you probably already have at home.

One ingredient that I’m really looking forward to every time I am eating a chicken fried rice are the pieces of the scrambled eggs. I eat those first then go with the rest of the dish. Yum!

You can also add peas and carrots on this dish, a classic chicken fried rice always comes with them.

But of course today, I cooked this dish for my husband, so no veggies. Oh yeah, you asked, he eats those green onions!

What is your favorite Chinese food? I am excited to know that and what you think of this dish in the comment below.

Here’s how to make Chicken Fried Rice.
