Chicken Fried Rice

Some blogger buddies I know, started a fun food challenge. Each week we pick an ingredient and then everyone makes a recipe using that ingredient. This is my first week participating and the ingredient is eggs. I have been wanting to make some Chinese food, and chicken fried rice just happens to have eggs. It is perfect. This recipe is so tasty you won't be calling in for Chinese take-out any more!

Chicken Fried Rice


3 Tbsp oil
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
3 green onions chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 eggs
3-4 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 lb chicken cooked and chopped
4 cups prepared rice
