Easy Fried Rice



I love fried rice and I especially love making it at home. It's super easy
and a perfect weeknight meal when you have very little time. 

Easy Fried Rice

2 cups basmati rice - cooked according to directions. Let cool.
2 chicken breasts, cubed
1 tablespoon butter
2 eggs
1 cup peas
1 cup corn
2 scallions ( optional )
2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce or to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper

1) Cook rice and let cool. I find when you do this the rice browns better.

2) In a large skillet add butter and brown chicken add salt, pepper and
garlic powder. Set chicken aside.

3) Add rice to the same skillet and stir until brown. Move rice to the side
of the pan and scramble the eggs and mix together.

4) To the rice add the chicken, corn, peas, scallions and as much soy as
desired.

Note - You can add in or take our whatever you'd like. You can make
this vegetarian. You can put in any veggies that you prefer. 
My kids happen to love the corn and peas combo.
