Chicken Fried Rice

Good Morning!

So can we just start off by saying that BEN IS THE WORST BACHELOR EVER.

first off all..hes not even that good looking

second of all..REALLY BEN. COURTNEY..I have a feel shes going to win and therefore I am never watching the bachelor again

okay I’m done I just had to get that out

So last night I made some Chicken Fried Rice and it was DEELISH

First I sauteed cut up chicken tenders in about 1tbsp sesame oil and a coupe sprays of cooking spray over high heat

In the meantime I got together the rest of my ingredients

Snap peas, grated carrots, broccoli, and scallions and cilantro for toppings

Once the chicken has browned for a few minutes, push the chicken to the outside of the pan and add in the broccoli, carrots, and snap peas

note:  I need a bigger pan. Anyways..stir around the chicken and veggies for a few minutes

Then add in a tbsp of roasted red chile paste. I am seriously obsessed with this stuff!

Stir the chili paste around, and then add in about 1/4 cup soy sauce and about 4-5 cups cooked brown rice. (I always buy the boil-in-a-bag stuff..not the best but super convenient!) Stir all the around and make a little whole in the middle for the egg

Crack and egg into the center of the pan and stir to incorporate

Once the egg is cooked through, turn the heat off and the fried rice is done!

I like to eat mine with cilantro scallions and hot sauce

SO good and good for you too!

Oh and another annoying thing that happened to me yesterday..I walked all the way to the gym (okay its only like a 8 minute walk) and I get there and the class I wanted to take is FULL! The girl in front of me in line was the last girl they let in. RUDE

So instead I walked home, and went for a 3 mile run instead. And it was awesome so it made up for the fact that I couldn’t take the class at the gym

Alright, time to go get dressed and go to starbucks for some studying before I hit the gym!

And Nanny, (I know you’ll be reading this), I’ll be using your starbucks giftcard to get my coffee this morning! can’t wait!


Question for ya!: Have you ever tried making fried rice at home?

I have a few times and I think it taste better than the fried rice they serve in restaurants! I also feel better about eating it when its homemade:)

  1. Even though I make stir-fry frequently, I’ve never actually made it into a fried rice. Maybe I should do that next to change things up.
