Best Ever Homemade Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Chicken fried rice is a true comfort food for me. It’s so easy to throw together, and its a full meal. Bits of chicken, scrambled egg… fresh carrots and peas. What’s not to love! I had some leftover chicken kickin’ around in the fridge and needed to make dinner, so I threw this simple dish together, and called it dinner. This recipe really is the best ever homemade chicken fried rice recipe.

If you don’t have leftover chicken, you can cook a breast or two up, or some thigh meat. Also, having the rice cold is best, but I don’t always do that, so just go for it.
