Chicken Fried Rice

Oh Yum! I found this recipe here. I made it tonight and it's amazing!

The Chicken Fried Rice starts with Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken
Serves 2-3
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
3/4 cup sugar (I used brown).
3/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons water
Whisk together sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, pepper, and water. Pour sauce over chicken in slow cooker. Slow cook on low for four hours.

This is amazing by itself, over white rice, as a meal. Super yummy! :)

If that's not enough, you can make the below and add the chicken. That's what we did tonight!

Better-Than-Takeout Chicken Fried Rice
Serves 5-6
4 cups prepared rice (I will use less next time, maybe 2 cups.)
1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked (See above)
1 cup peas & carrots, frozen
1 small white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs (I wish I would have used 3-4)
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce (I used the soy sauce juice from the crock pot)
Prepare rice according to package instructions to yield 4 cups cooked rice.

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion, garlic, peas, and carrots.

Stir fry until tender. Crack eggs into pan and scramble, mixing throughout vegetables.

Add rice, chicken, and soy sauce to pan. Mix well.

Serve! Eat! So yummy!!
