I had a request to make Chicken Fried Rice and I wanted to share this recipe. It is delicious and easy to make as long as you have all the ingredients on hand. I cooked the rice the day before since fried rice is best with leftover rice. What I love about fried rice is how versatile it is, because it is a meal made out of leftovers. This Chicken Fried Rice recipe is so simple and delicious. It is also freezer friendly. Enjoy!
