Getting off this sugar-high

Due to the holidays and just because I enjoy baking, I’ve been making A LOT of sweet baked goodies lately. So it’s time to post up something new. WARNING: Besides baking and following new recipes, I barely measure my ingredients when it comes to my own cooking so don’t be alarmed if you’re trying to follow my recipe and I don’t have exact measurements. I will try to guesstimate but it’s ok if it’s not exact. And please bear with my directions/instructions. I will try to make things as clear as possible.

Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
1 stalk of broccoli, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1-2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced
7 button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced into wedges
1 cup of frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn, green beans, etc.)
3-4 cups of white rice, cooked
2-3 tablespoons canola oil
1 Thai pepper, sliced (optional)
3-5 tablespoon oyster sauce, or to taste
1-2 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste
2 tablespoon Chinese Fried Rice mix
salt
black pepper

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a pan over high heat and add in the chicken and Thai pepper. Season the chicken with salt and black pepper and cook chicken until it’s no longer pink.

2. Add the sliced mushrooms and stir for 30 seconds before adding the green peppers and onions. Stir and let cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the onions have started to wilt.

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir in Chinese Fried Rice mix with soy sauce and oyster sauce. Set aside.

4. Add in the broccoli and cook until it’s done to your preference (I like mines slightly cooked and still crunchy, hence, that’s why they go in last so they don’t get over-cooked).

5. Add in the cooked rice and mixed vegetables and stir into chicken and vegetable mixture.

6. Add in the soy/oyster/Fried Rice mixture and toss to coat.
