This is a “from scratch” recipe. But you can also produce great fried rice with leftovers.
Some leftovers that work well:
- 2 cups of cooked, leftover rice
- Leftover rotisserie chicken
- Leftover cooked chicken breasts or thighs
- Scraps of chives or garlic chives can be used in place of scallions

- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup of white rice

3/ While the rice and chicken cooks, preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When heated, spray with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the beaten eggs. Cook until the top surface of the eggs is dry. Roll up like an omelette and remove to a cutting board to cool. When cooled, cut into bite-sized slices.
4/ In the same skillet used for the eggs, heat up the sesame oil over medium heat.
