chicken fried rice

Fried rice is so much fun to make on the griddle and chicken fried rice is one of my favorites. This is a basic recipe so feel free to add more veggies or meat and go wild.

Chicken Fried Rice

My three take aways.
1. When making fried rice on a griddle make a lot. Leftovers are great for lunches or meals later in the week.
2. I prefer chicken thighs because I think they don't dry out as much in this recipe but feel free to use breasts.
3. Don't skip the sesame oil, I really feel like this is what gives it the take out taste.
