Easy Peas-y Fried Rice

When I have leftover rice, and leftover rotisserie chicken, and half a bag of frozen shrimp in the fridge...I can make a quick dinner that is really good, really filling and really quick. The next time you get home at 6pm and you need to put something on the table quickly before the kids die of starvation...try this recipe!

Fried Rice
4 Cups leftover Long Grain Rice, chilled (you can use brown rice too)
2 Eggs
1 Cup Frozen Peas and carrots
1/2 Onion (chopped)
1 Clove Crushed Garlic
1 Teaspoon Minced jalapeno chili or you can use a sprinkle of red pepper flakes
1 Cup leftover Cooked Chicken (diced)
6 slices bacon, fried crispy and chopped
medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce, more or less.. to taste really
2 green onions, diced

Cook the rice, cover and refrigerate. Gently whisk eggs in a bowl. In large saute pan, cook bacon, set aside to drain. Pour off all but a small amount of the bacon grease and add the egg mixture. Cook as if making an omelet, just turn over to cook through. Remove from pan and cut into small pieces. Add a little bacon grease and saute the onion until cooked. Add garlic, chili and shrimp, cook until shrimp turn pink. Remove from pan and slice. Add rice and stir through. Add shrimp, chicken ,bacon, egg and soy sauce. Cook, stirring all the time until hot. Add green onions and stir through just before serving.

  2. Hope you like the recipe, it's super easy! Perfect for those times when dinnertime rolls around and you haven't planned anything. I try to keep rice cooked ahead in the fridge and ALWAYS have leftover chicken!
