Chicken and Egg Fried Rice

I received the April issue of Parents magazine mid-March and was excited to see an awesome selection of recipes to try.  This one was top on my list as something that I knew my kids would enjoy and since I have been making a lot of pasta dishes lately, it helped me get a bit of variety into the rotation.  I made a couple of slight changes to the recipe as it was written, and I was right - my kids devoured it.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp plus 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I used an Uncle Ben's packet that took 90 seconds in the microwave)
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and 1 tsp of the soy sauce.  Set aside.
  2. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium high.  Add carrots and cook 2 minutes.  Add chicken; cook and stir until chicken no longer pink - about 3 minutes.
  3. Mix in rice and remaining soy sauce; cook and stir for about 2-4 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Add green onions and then move chicken and rice mixture to one side of pan.  Pour sesame oil into the other side of the pan.  Allow to heat and then pour egg mixture in with the sesame oil.  Allow to cook without stirring until beginning to set; then stir gently until completely set.  Mix the eggs in with the rice and chicken.

Difficulty: easy to medium
Time: 25 minutes
