Chicken Fried Rice!

Just to clear up any confusion right away, there is no fried chicken in chicken fried rice...Kristin;)

I love Chinese food and my favorite dish is...Chicken Fried Rice. I decided to make a healthy version for supper tonight and it was delicious!

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cups brown rice, cooked
3 tbsp olive oil
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
liquid aminos (or soy sauce)

Start by cooking your chicken. I marinated mine in a teriyake sauce and had Ryan grill it earlier in the week. Chop up your chicken and set aside. Cook your rice and set aside. Just a note if you don't usually cook with brown has to simmer way longer than white rice. You could also cook this earlier in the week and store in the fridge until you are ready to prepare this meal.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add peas and carrots and garlic and allow to cook for a few minutes or until veggies are thawed. Add eggs and scramble in with veggies. Once eggs are done, add rice and chicken and mix well, cooking until all ingredients are warm. Season with liquid aminos (a healthier soy sauce substitute). Enjoy!
