Chicken Fried Rice
A few weeks ago, my friend and I were in desperate need for some comfort food. I looooooove some good comfort food. We both had a really rough week at work and needed a distraction from the job that literally takes up our entire lives. Chicken Fried Rice is the perfect meal for this. I make it whenever I’ve had a rough day, or I’m in the mood to cuddle up and watch a movie. This recipe makes enough for four people, so dinner for the family is covered for tonight!
2 Cups of Rice (I use instant rice, because less work=better work. Am I right?)
1 Bag of Frozen Corn, Green Bean, and Carrot Medley (less than $1 at your local grocery store)
3 Chicken Breasts
4 Teaspoons of Minced Garlic
1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil
2 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
1 Green Onion
Cut chicken breasts into small bites. Place in pan with sesame oil and vegetable oil. Cook until chicken is no longer pink on outside. Cook rice separately.
Add soy sauce, garlic, and whites of green onions to pan. Toss until garlic is fragrant.
Add frozen vegetables to pan with chicken (don’t worry about thawing the veggies!). Once veggies are soft, add rice to pan. Mix all together in pan.
Plate and enjoy!! Salt, pepper, and add some soy sauce to taste J
