Better than take-out Chicken Fried Rice | Leftover recipes

We buy the fully cooked rotisserie chicken from walmart(read once a month) whenever we visit the place. I love it on my salads seasoned with some salt, pepper and garlic powder and then I love to make chicken salad with greek yogurt, pecans and cranberries which I have as it is or use it in sandwiches. This fried rice is my new favorite to use up the leftover chicken. Stir fried veggies, eggs, chicken and rice mildy flavored with soy sauce and loads of pepper ~ what more for a wholesome meal. I would recommend you to use sesame oil for the best results cos the nuttiness of the oil enhances the overall flavor of this dish.

Prep time: 20 mins; Cook time: 20 mins; Serves - 2-3

~*What U Need*~
Rotisserie chicken - 1 cup, chopped
Cooked basmati rice - 2 cups
Sesame oil - 2 tbsp
Yellow onion - 1, small, chopped
Carrots, beans - 1 cup, chopped
Frozen peas - 1/4 cup
Soy sauce - 2-3 tbsp
Eggs - 2, lightly beaten
Green onions - 1/8 cup, chopped
Salt, pepper

How I Made it:
Heat sesame oil in a large pan or wok. Add onion and fry till translucent. Add the peas, beans and carrots and fry until tender.

Move this to the side, and pour the beaten eggs onto the other side. Scramble the eggs. Once cooked, mix the eggs with the vegetables. Add the rice and chicken. Pour and gently combine. Add chopped green onions if desired.

Serve warm!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
