I was able to make this recipe completely out of my freezer and pantry, which is a total plus for a working mom. This recipe made enough leftovers for our family to eat it all week. I used a bag of frozen veggies and carrots I needed to use up. Quick and easy!

Perfect fried rice recipe and great for my weekly meal prep. Next time I will try it with another protein like shrimp or steak.

I'm obsessed with chicken fried rice, it's one of my favorite things to order for take-out. I decided to go out on a whim and make it myself. It was so yummy! Using two day old rice was perfect, I don't know why I had not thought of that before. The rice wasn't mushy at all, like the previous failed attempts at making fried rice. This recipe is fantastic.

Yum! I had to make with freshly cooked rice but it was still a big hit with the kids. We fried up some chicken nuggets (judge me if you want) and it turned out great.

I made this twice, and I can say hands down the day old rice was incredibly better.. The first time I made it, my "fried" rice turned out mushy because I cooked it that same night. This was better than takeout! Use day old rice!

I always end up adding extra eggs to my fried rice, it never seems like enough. For this recipe I did three. Also, I didn't use any chicken for this recipe and I subbed garlic powder for minced garlic. Overall this was super yummy, and the kids love it too.

Super easy! I used a rotisserie chicken and subbed broccoli for the green beans. Delicious!
