I had not made fried rice in a long time (you know how you just sometimes forget about yummy things?), but I recently decided to make it as a side dish. I was not expecting my girls to not only gobble it down but fight over the leftovers the next day! So, I thought to myself, I’ve got to make this into a whole one-dish meal … and here it is!
Here’s the secret though: instead of making a separate sauce to flavor the fried rice at the end like other recipes, you actually use all that yummy goodness to marinate the chicken in before getting started. It’s oh. so. good! And it may even be my 16-year-old’s new favorite meal. It’s even great leftover heated up and placed in a Thermos for lunch at school, work, or on the go. I’m definitely not going to forget about this one again anytime soon!
