Take-Out from Home

One of my husband's favorite meals that I make is my Chicken Fried Rice. We live about 40 some odd miles from any "Chinese" restaurants and even those aren't very good. So, when we are in the mood for take out this is what I do!

The cast & crew are:
1c. uncooked jasmine rice
2c. water
sesame oil
olive oil
pepper
soy sauce
ginger powder
brown sugar
toasted sesame seeds
garlic powder
chicken breasts





 

First, you need to put the rice in a microwave safe bowl with the 2c. water. and nuke it for about 15 min. depending on you microwave and the settings.


While the rice is cooking you need to cut the chicken breasts in to small pieces.




Now brown the chicken in a pan with a couple tablespoons of brown sugar, soy sauce to taste, ginger powder to taste, and garlic powder to taste.


Now cook the chicken until its cooked all the way through. You may have to let the juices cook down some. You want it to look kinda like this...


Set the chicken aside and put you wok (or big pan) on the heat. Add a couple table table spoons of sesame oil and one or two of olive oil. Add the rice after the oil gets hot. Stir the rice around a bit to coat it lightly in the hot oil. Shove the rice to the side and scramble two eggs on the empty side. Mix together. At some point, it doesn't really matter when you should add the soy sauce. None of this is exact. It all depends on your taste.


Add peas and carrots and stir around ever minute or so until the rice is browned somewhat and the veggies are cooked.



When the veggies are heated up, taste it and see if you think it needs more of anything. Next, put the chicken on top and sprinkle on some toasted sesame seeds.




 Viola! Plate and serve with egg rolls or spring rolls, or dumplings, or wantons.....you get the idea! You don't even have to buy any of that canned Chinese stuff ( Very rarely will I eat anything from a can....it just grosses me out. I know, I have problems.) or a boxed dinner thing. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
