Use your old rice. Rice should be at least one day old, two is even better! The chicken can be from your leftovers too! Remember that you can use just about any veggies you have on hand. This is a super cheap and easy recipe.
- Leftover rice
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (you could use shrimp or beef too!)
- 2 eggs (more or less depending on how much rice you have)
- 1 cup frozen mixed veggies (or whatever leftovers you have)
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
First get your wok nice and hot – then add a couple dollops of oil.
If you have the chicken already prepared, heat it up in the wok and then dump it on a plate. If not, cook it and then dump it on a plate.
Next cook up the veggies and garlic until they are nice and tender.
Dump them on top of the chicken.
Next up are the eggs. Lightly scramble them in the bottom of the wok. Once the are done dump them on the chicken and veggies.
Add a little more oil if your pan is looking dry.
Now put the rice in and spread it around. Don’t mess with it too much or it will break down and get all mushy. I try to wait until I hear the rice really sizzle and then mix it around once.
After you hear the sizzle again – dump all the other ingredients on top.
Move it around again. Try to get the uncooked rice to the bottom when you mix all the ingredients.
Add the soy sauce and listen to it hiss.
Move it around one last time.
Should be done now! Maybe a total cook time of 30 minutes of you have raw chicken to start…. closer to 1o if chicken and veg are already cooked!
Serve with a side of Chili sauce with Garlic!
