This is one of my son’s all time favorite suppers and I shared it in Taste of the South’s Easy Southern Suppers collector’s issue, which is available on newsstands now (more info at the bottom of this post). I think it must be a teenage boy thing to love chicken fried rice. Brady used to ask us to go get it as takeout for him whenever the hankering hit him until I developed a quick and easy homemade recipe. He now prefers the homemade because I can add more of what he loves – which is why I often double the peas and carrots!
This is just such a wonderful meal and I really think the brown rice makes it even better. You can, of course, modify it by adding in your favorite veggies, doubling up on ingredients that you like most, and adjusting the seasonings to suit your taste. Leftovers make a great lunch or even freeze well – but there is a trick to having leftovers: you have to double it and hide the other half when everyone sits down to the table!
To make this exactly as I am making it in this tutorial, you’ll need: Vegetable oil, Frozen Peas, Instant Brown Rice, Soy Sauce, Garlic Salt, Eggs, Matchstick Carrots, Chicken, and some green onions.
Beat your eggs together.
Then place some oil in a large skillet, let it heat up a bit, then scramble them over medium heat.
Once they’re scrambled, scrape them out into a bowl and wipe out your skillet.
In that same skillet, place remaining oil and chicken sprinkled with garlic salt.
Cook this over medium to medium high heat until no longer pink in the center.
Add peas, rice, and soy sauce.
Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring from time to time, until heated through.
Return eggs to skillet and add carrots, green onions, and remaining soy sauce.
Stir until well combined and then dig in!
