Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Fried Rice

2 cups cooked jasmine rice
2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil
1 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts with Rib Meat
1/2 cup diced onion
2 1/2 serving Meijer Frozen Peas and Carrots
1 large egg, scrambled
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce

Recipe Directions for Chicken Fried Rice

  1. Pour oil in large 12" skillet over medium-high heat. One the oil is shimmering, but not smoking (peanut oil allows you to get REALLY hot) put the chicken in to cook. To brown the chicken, spread out in a single layer and don't move it until done on the one side (about 3 minutes), then flip over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until well browned. Remove the chicken with a slotted spatula or spoon and set aside.

  2. Put a little bit of oil in the pan if it has dried too much. keep hot over medium high heat and to cook the chilled rice, onions, and peas and carrots mix, constantly moving, 3 minutes. Move the vegetables and rice to the edges of the pan, making an open place to scramble the eggs. Pour in the eggs and move them constantly until no longer clear. Add the cooked chicken back in and pour in soy sauce and hoisin sauce; mix well and continue to cook until heated through, about a minute.
