Easy Chicken Fried Rice – This Chicken Fried Rice is so much better than takeout, and you won’t believe how easy AND quick it is to make!
Talk about a one-pan, wam-bam thank-you-ma’am recipe! 😜
Hi, friends! How are you? What are you up to?! Wanna know what I’m up to? OH-kay! ⬅ said in Monica’s voice. (Monica Gellar!!)
So. Today, I’m traveling to Myrtle Beach, where it’s 30 degrees warmer than here, and where I will be sharing a few days away from work with several of my colleagues. We will be eating, drinking, talking, eating again, and so on… all I can say is, YAY MEEEE! 🙌
BUT! More importantly, we’re here for the food and not for my bragging. Back to bizness.
One of my goals in life is to serve my family – AND YOURS – all the takeout copycats that I can make.
Thing is, I love a ready-to-go meal just as much as the next person, but I honestly love my home cooked dinners way, way, waaaay more. I can’t help it. I think it’s because home cooked food equals comfort food which equals winter and all the cold and snow that comes with it. Thank goodness we are in the homestretch because, Spring is so close, I can almost feel it!
About that rice…
This chicken fried rice is soooo a Wednesday recipe. Like, hey Wednesday, I got this! No drive-thrus tonight, aight!?! BECAUSE! this is simple and versatile and loaded with flavor.
Lately, we have been HOOKED on pineapples. I’m talking at least once a week. Every kind of recipe you can imagine, whatever good stuff I can get my hands on, I throw pineapples on it.
- Crock Pot Pineapple Barbecue Sauce Pork Chops ☑
- Grilled Salmon with Pineapple & Piquillo Peppers Salsa ☑
- Pineapple Upside Down Yogurt Cake ☑
Thus, our fried rice didn’t stand a chance without a few chunks of ’em.
Working off my Shrimp Fried Rice recipe, sometimes I find that I gotta mix it up and share these little simple things with you. We have rice, some chicken, lots of veggies, more rice… and it all happens in one pan.
All you have to do here is throw some stuff in a skillet and eat it. I don’t even bother putting it on a plate. I just stand above the stove and “taste-test” for, like, forever! It’s THAT good. Trust me. Make it and you’ll see.🍜
