Here’s another installment of my “cooking on the go” series with my friends at Hilton – this time I’m at Home2 Suites.  One of the BEST parts of the experience is being able to enjoy it with my best friend, Max!

When you’re in a pinch of time and resources, try this no-fuss chicken fried rice recipe made with Rotisserie chicken.  I love purchasing Rotisserie chicken because it is a convenient and low-cost way to get quality, delicious protein for multiple days or servings.

Overall, this recipe is very easy to put together using just a skillet and a microwave.  Even though it only requires 5 base ingredients to purchase, you can save even more money by using free packets of low-sodium soy sauce that you can grab from your local grocery store or Asian cuisine restaurant…you know, we all have that condiment drawer in the house.

Make it better!

5-Ingredient Rotisserie Chicken Fried Rice

Ingredients

5-Ingredient Rotisserie Chicken Fried Rice

Ingredients for 4 hearty servings

  • 1lb skinless Rotisserie chicken meat, chopped
  • 3 cups cooked Instant brown rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 3 tablespoons lite soy sauce (or more/less to taste)
  • Garnish
    • Fresh green onion
    • Toasted sesame seeds
Steps
  1. Place the instant brown rice in the microwave and cook according to instructions given.
  2. Remove the skin from Rotisserie chicken, pull the meat from the bone then chop it into pieces, about ½-inch to 1-inch in size.
  3. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. When it’s hot spray with a little olive oil, then toss in the chicken and cooked rice.  Mix it around in the skillet for about 2 minutes (enough to get a very light sear on the chicken), then make a hole in the middle of the skillet.
  4. Beat 2 eggs together in a small bowl then pour them in the middle of the skillet. Let the eggs bubble for a brief second, then immediately begin chopping the eggs up with a spatula and folding them into chicken and rice.  There should be no large, visible chunks of egg.
  5. Fold in frozen peas and carrots then add the soy sauce. Continue stirring for about 1 minute.  The heat of the skillet and the food will quickly thaw the peas and carrots so be careful not to overcook.
  6. Remove from the heat, and if desired, garnish with fresh chopped green onion and toasted sesame seeds.
