  • - Hey everyone, it's Natasha of NatashasKitchen.com,

  • and today I'm gonna show you how to make the easiest

  • chicken fried rice.

  • It's a great way to use up leftovers,

  • it's perfect for meal planning.

  • And it takes less than 30 minutes to make.

  • It's just some quick prep before we fire up the stove,

  • so let's get started.

  • Crack four large eggs into a small bowl

  • and thoroughly beat them together with a fork.

  • Set that aside, then finely chop about a quarter cup

  • of green onion.

  • And I do like to chop a little extra

  • to use as garnish for later.

  • You'll need one pound of boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

  • Trim off the excess fat,

  • then dice into small, bite size pieces.

  • I love chicken thighs because they add a lot of flavor

  • but you can use chicken breast or chicken tenders

  • if that's what you have on hand.

  • Season the chicken with half a teaspoon of salt

  • and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper.

  • Now that our ingredients are prepped and ready to go,

  • let's fire up the stove.

  • Place a large, preferably non-stick pan

  • or a wok over medium high heat

  • and add one tablespoon of oil.

  • Add your seasoned chicken and cook for about four

  • to five minutes, stirring occasionally

  • or just until the chicken is fully cooked through.

  • Transfer the cooked chicken to a separate bowl.

  • Reduce to medium heat, drizzle in a little more oil,

  • if needed, then add your scrambled eggs.

  • The eggs cook super fast, so scramble with your spatula

  • for about a minute or just until the eggs are no longer

  • wet, then transfer them to the same bowl with the chicken.

  • Wipe the skillet clean with a damp paper towel

  • then drizzle in another tablespoon of oil.

  • Now add five cups of cooked and cooled rice.

  • Spread the rice in an even layer over the bottom of the pan

  • and let that sit undisturbed without stirring

  • for one to two minutes.

  • Give the rice a stir, then saute for another one

  • to two minutes undisturbed.

  • The rice should sizzle.

  • Drizzle the top with two tablespoons of soy sauce

  • or add it to taste.

  • Then add one and a half teaspoons of sesame oil.

  • Next, stir in 12 ounces of your thawed peas and carrots.

  • Add the chicken and scrambled eggs back to the pan

  • and stir everything to combine,

  • breaking up the eggs into smaller pieces.

  • And finally, add your chopped green onion.

  • Continue stirring and cooking

  • just until everything is heated through.

  • You can also add more soy sauce

  • and sesame oil to taste.

  • Oh ho, ho, ho, ho, that's what I'm talking about.

  • It is lunch time.

  • Ugh, and I'm so hungry for this.

  • Yum!

  • Love to serve it while it's hot and fresh.

  • But this also reheats really well,

  • so it's perfect for meal planning.

  • All right, we're gonna jump right into this

  • and do the taste test.

  • Oh, yum, yum, yum.

  • And this fried rice is loaded.

  • And then I like to top it off with a little bit more

  • fresh green onion.

  • Just for a little bit of color and flavor.

  • Okay, here we go.

  • (upbeat electronic music)

  • Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm.

  • Mm.

  • I can't believe something this easy can taste so good.

  • It is perfectly seasoned, and again,

  • if you wanna use a low sodium soy sauce,

  • just add it to taste.

  • Ugh, I love that this is a meal in itself!

  • It's packed with protein with the eggs and the chicken

  • and also it's loaded with sweet veggies.

  • The sweet peas and tender carrots, I love that.

  • And most of these ingredients you probably already have

  • in your fridge, like, winning! (laughs)

  • And it's also really affordable to make.

  • Perfect way to use up leftovers.

  • And it's really good for meal prep.

  • So if you wanna use these little to-go containers,

  • it reheats really well.

  • You can pack it for work lunch, school lunch,

  • any kind of lunch.
