Easy Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice is so simple to make at home, and is way better, healthier and cheaper than take-out!

I mean really. Who doesn’t like fried rice? Ok maybe my six-year-old doesn’t because of the veggies inside, but I am pretty sure he is the only one out there. For my birthday dinner with my family, I chose to go to our favorite little Chinese restaurant. And it was the bomb. But their fried rice was excellent. But I kept thinking, I can make this just as good at home and I have been craving it ever since!

Since I learned a few awesome tricks on how to get the perfect fried rice in my recipe here, I wanted to make a big old batch for myself for lunch. The baby was craving it that day. But I thought, why don’t I add in some protein and make a meal out of it. You guys. The chicken gave it such amazing flavor! I really couldn’t believe how good it turned out. I promise that you can stay at home and have this better than take out chicken fried rice. You will really be impressed with yourself.
