For over a week, going on two, I've been very sick. There has been very little cooking going on which is highly unusual for me. My husband is wanting me to get well, one because he's tired of seeing me sick and two because he is ready for some serious cooking! I'm ready too!
A few days ago I made a large batch of brown rice and put it in the fridge. This way I could grab a cup or two and toss it into a pan with a few items and supper was done. I used it for the Sookie's Chicken Casserole and again last night for a quick easy chicken fried rice.
I still have some left and will most likely toss it with some frozen veggies and soy sauce for lunch.
My husband and I were obviously on the same sheet of music last night, he stopped at the Asian market on the way home and brought home some goodies! My favorite sweet and spicy chili sauce, sesame oil, fish sauce (something new to try) and Kimchi for him. Not me! It's HOT.
Chicken Fried Rice
2 chicken breast , diced
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
In a skillet or wok, heat the oil and soy sauce, saute the chicken.
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
3-5 tsp soy sauce (depending on your taste)
stir well and cook for a few minutes.
Next add 2 cups of brown rice (already cooked and cold, works best)
Slice 3 large green onions.
Cover and simmer for 3 minutes, remove lid and saute until rice is heated through.
Serve and ENJOY!
