Chicken Fried Rice


I had a request to make Chicken Fried Rice and I wanted to share this recipe.  It is delicious and easy to make as long as you have all the ingredients on hand.  I cooked the rice the day before since fried rice is best with leftover rice.   What I love about fried rice is how versatile it is, because it is a meal made out of leftovers.  This Chicken Fried Rice recipe is so simple and delicious.  It is also freezer friendly.  Enjoy!
