Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice - Very easy to make using leftover rice, vegetables and chicken.

I used brown rice, broccoli, frozen peas/carrots and chicken thighs for this recipe.

It's also best to use day old rice as fresh cooked rice is too sticky for stir frying. If you don't have leftover rice, spread rice on a baking sheet or plate and place in the freezer for about 30 -60 minutes to harden before cooking.
