Chicken Fried Rice Recipe Made With Leftovers

Chicken Fried Rice
We love chicken fried rice at our house and wait for the leftover night. The weekly meals often consist of at least one curry meal and rice dinner, and another roast chicken night. So, naturally, it makes sense to combine any leftovers into a quick and tasty combo.

Make your favorite take-out dish at home, you will undoubtedly use less salt, sauce, and oil. Plus, you are more likely to pick quality ingredients and avoid added “flavor-packets” and preservatives, often used at take-out restaurants.

To save time if you don’t have leftover rice on hand or don’t want to cook a batch, use two pouches of ready-to-serve rice. Works like a charm. I don’t even bother thawing the frozen peas and carrot blend that’s mixed into the rice.
