  • Summary

    This easy, one-skillet recipe is ready in 20 minutes and better than takeout. You'll never be tempted again to eat rice from a flimsy white takeout container after trying homemade. To save time if you don't have leftover rice on hand or don't want to cook a batch, use two pouches of ready-to-serve rice. The chicken is moist and juicy and there are green onions, garlic, sesame oil, and soy sauce for layers of flavor. My favorites are the bits of scrambled eggs. It's such an easy and healthy weeknight dinner you can whip up in no time and the leftovers are great for lunches.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
    • 3/4 to 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas and diced carrots blend (I don't thaw and use straight from the freezer)
    • 3 green onions, trimmed and sliced into thin rounds
    • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
    • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 4 cups cooked rice (I use white, long-grain or brown may be substituted. To save time use two 8.8-ounce pouches cooked and ready-to-serve rice)
    • 3 to 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    • salt and pepper, optional and to taste
    • salt and pepper, optional and to taste
