What's For Dinner? "Chicken Fried Rice"

Image
The main reason I like to make my own fried rice at home, besides the cost factor, is that I can control what goes into it. We only eat brown rice in our home and I don't know of any restaurant that uses anything but white rice. Plus I can use less oil and to be honest it tastes just as good without it.

Chicken Fried Rice (makes 4 side servings)

Ingredients

1 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
2 Tbsp Olive Oil or Canola Oil, divided
1/2 yellow or white onion, diced finely
2 carrots, peeled and diced finely
3 cups cooked brown or white rice
1/2 Tbsp butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp sesame oil
3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

-Heat 1 Tbsp olive or canola oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet on high.

-Add chicken and cook until brown but not cooked through stirring frequently. Add onions and carrots and cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently (you want a slight char on the vegetables).

-Add the remaining 1 Tbsp olive or cano…
