As I written before, I have fired my Chinese delivery restaurant. It was well deserved - a mild case of food poisoning, finding a washer in my food and keeping an uninsured driver employed after they hit a friends car. So I found myself craving Chinese food yesterday and considering my options from my refrigerator/freezer/pantry, I was easily able to put together Chicken fried rice. I was so happy with this recipe that I'll have to try cream cheese wontons next.
Chicken Fried Rice
3 chicken breasts, cut in strips
3 cups rice, preferably cooked the day before but 4 hours before works too
1 large egg, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup peas
1/4 cup onions, diced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Chili garlic sauce
Cook chicken strips in 3 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan or wok. When cooked, remove from pan and put in carrots and cook until tender. Add in peas, onions and garlic and cook for a couple minutes. Pour beaten egg on top and stir until cooked. Add chicken back in, rice and sauces and mix together. Serve when the chicken and rice are heated.
