In honor of  Chinese New Year this week, here is my favorite chicken fried rice.  To be honest, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Chinese food. Besides, we can’t deny how much the Chinese has influenced our food culture.  So can we just have a moment of silence to celebrate it? Yes, because I’m grateful for every Chinese food I ever ate in my life.

When I was growing up in a big family of 6 kids, it was certainly popular.  So familiar and craveable! What I love about this fried rice is it’s a whole meal in one plate. Who wouldn’t want less dishes to wash, right? The other thing I love is it has tons of healthful vegetables in it. No MSG here too.  Above all, it cooks really fast.  So delicious and comforting!chicken fried rice

So if you are looking for a fast, fresh and healthy weeknight dinner, this is for you. And if you got leftover rice sitting in your fridge, here’s a great way to use it.
