Fried rice is something that I almost never get with Chinese take-out. I always make sure I'm getting white or brown rice with my meal. But for some reason the idea of homemade chicken fried rice really appealed to me. This recipe makes a LOT of food - so it is great for a crowd or you might want to halve it. I ended up eating it for lunch three days in a row and I never got sick of it - so that in itself is a testament of how good it was.
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 1.5 lbs cooked, cubed chicken breasts
- 2 carrots, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 1 large red pepper, diced

- 6 cups cooked rice (note: make this a day ahead of time for the best results)
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 3 green onions, sliced
1. Heat sesame oil in a large wok or skillet. Add onion, carrots, celery and pepper. Cook until softened 5 - 6 minutes.
2. Add in chicken and 2 tbsp. soy sauce. Stir to combine. Then add in snow peas, continuing to stir.
3. Add in rice and stir throughly to combine and heat the rice.
