|Chicken fried rice is a delicious dish that can even be put together with leftovers. You can cook the chicken and rice ahead of time and make the dish the next day, or you can freeze leftover rice and chopped chicken and use them when you're ready to cook. However, you must use cooked rice that is cold and straight out of the refrigerator
Things You'll Need:
2 cups cooked rice, refrigerated overnight
1 cup chopped, cooked chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper
1 small can sliced water chestnuts
Heat 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the chilled rice. Using a spatula, break the rice apart and stir over medium heat until well heated. Put the rice aside in a bowl.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet and cook the 2 eggs, lightly scrambling them.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in the skillet. Add the rice back to the skillet with the eggs. Add the cooked chicken and water chestnuts. Stir fry over medium heat until the entire mixture is heated through.
Season with soy sauce to taste.
