How can you get dinner on the table quickly with 5 ingredients you already have in the fridge or pantry? Better Than Takeout Chinese Fried Rice is the answer.
The kids need to be in two different places during the dinner hour and I need to make sure they are fed before they go. If you are like me then you must get tired of feeding your kids the same thing over and over to get them out the door.
My Better Than Takeout Chinese Fried Rice recipe uses 5 simple ingredients in one dish that packs protein and veggie goodness all in one. And the great thing is that you can use leftovers to cut your cooking time even more.
We usually always have leftover chicken in the fridge. Sometimes it's pork tenderloin from the night before. Shrimp would work great in this recipe too. Make the rice fresh or plan ahead and cook enough to make this recipe on the night you'll need it. Scramble an egg, add in some frozen vegetables and shake in some soy sauce.
Dinner is served.
