Chicken Fried Rice

Fried rice is one my favorite recipes, and the perfect way to use all of that leftover rice. Creating this recipe was challenging, because I typically don’t measure my ingredients when I make fried rice. I like to just throw in a little bit of everything. It’s not just a great way to use up leftover rice, but vegetables as well.

In my fried rice, I only use 1/4 cup of soy sauce. I personally don’t like my rice to be too salty. As with almost all my cooking, I use a cast iron skillet.
