I have tried several fried rice recipes over the years and was never greatly impressed. I tried a new one tonight and it was great. This makes a filling, cheap main dish meal. I used leftover white rice that I had cooked in chicken stock (homemade), some cubed cooked chicken I had in the freezer from some really cheap chicken I got a while back and veggies. Here is the recipe. I changed it a little (because I always do). I omitted the green onions (don't like them) and bean sprouts (didn't have any) but added about a tsp of chopped fresh garlic and about a quarter cup of finely diced yellow bell pepper. I also didn't do the egg in step 4 like it said, but I moved the chicken/veggie mixture to the sides of the pan after step 5 then poured the eggs in the center and stirred them until they were mostly cooked and then stirred them into the chicken/veggie mixture.
Alex asked to see what I was making for dinner tonight and when I showed him his face lit up and he said yumm! The best part is that there was enough left over to put some in the freezer for another meal.
