Chicken Fried Rice

Are you tired of dirtying every pot and pan in the kitchen to cook dinner? Me too. As a result, I have become a big fan of one pot meals. As a busy working mom, I do not like spending lots of time doing the dishes. So much so, that it is not unusual to find a pile of dishes on my counter. As a result, I really like meals that do not dirty every dish in my kitchen.

This chicken fried rice recipe not only uses one pan, it also contains protein and veggies. This is a win-win for my house as I have kids who are not so willing to eat their veggies. I know this is my own fault, but when I can put the veggies into a larger put together meal it is easier. Consequently, other veggies can be added to this recipe or switched out for veggies your family may like better.


  • 3 tbls olive oil
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 2 large eggs

  • 4 tbls soy sauce
