Fried Rice with Chicken
Submitted by: Marian Darnay, Mandan
This is one of my all-time favorites. I love fried rice — the taste, to me, is like the feeling you get watching a favorite old movie — you know it by heart, but it’s still fun and satisfying to watch.
It’s comfort food.
And, it’s really easy and quick to make.
- 1 chicken breast, diced
- soy sauce
- peas (optional)
- Pre-cook about 2 cups of rice.
- Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet.
- Add diced chicken, onions and garlic. Stir and cook until the chicken is not pink any longer.
- Add the egg and stir.
- Add the pre-cooked rice and stir.
- Add soy sauce and peas (if desired)

Optional ingredients (beside peas): Green pepper, celery, shredded carrots, cilantro, chives — almost any vegetable.
