Easy & Delicious Chicken "Fried" Rice Recipe
Quick Dinner Solution
This is a simple chicken "fried" rice recipe that is tasty and easy to make. There is very little oil used and the rice is not actually fried and no wok is needed. I like to use it when I have leftover cooked chicken, but it is also possible to use canned chicken and pantry supplies for this dinner. It is a good idea when you can't make it to the grocery store. Keep a frozen bag of Asian stir-fry vegetables in the freezer, and prepare that for a side dish!

This dish could be made vegetarian by substituting firm tofu cut into 3/4" cubes instead of the chicken. Or you may simply leave out the chicken and add two more scrambled eggs.
