Chicken Fried Rice by Alex

My husband is obsessed with Chicken Fried Rice, so I tend to make it at least once a month! Also it is another one of those few times I can get my daughter to eat meat! I am a huge YouTube junkie, and I found this on there, I have tweaked it to our taste buds and you can too! 

The ingredients we use are as follows:

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Soy Sauce (to your discretion)
Oyster Sauce ( to your discretion)
2-3 cups of FRESH chopped broccoli
3 eggs
2 cups of 1 day old refrigerated white rice(important to be cold rice!)
2 cups of chopped mushrooms
1 cup of shredded carrots
2-4  cups of bite size pieces of chicken

You will cook in 1 POT & you will need a big bowl, also a mug.

Put your burner on medium high. add 1/2 tablespoon of oil and add in all of your chicken, also add in 6 shakes of soy sauce and about a teaspoon of oyster sauce. Cook the chicken until it is no longer pink on the inside of the largest piece. (any extra sauce/juice will need to go into the mug)

Put the chicken away into the bowl I mentioned above. Next saute your mushrooms and once those are about  done add 1/2 tablespoon of oil & and add the broccoli & the carrots into the pan with the mushrooms, ad 2-3 shakes of the soy sauce and at 1/2 a teaspoon of oyster sauce. I only cook those a little bit bc we still like a crunch on our veggies, but cook them as long as you wish.(any extra sauce/juice will need to go into the mug this time however leave just a little for the eggs to be cooked in)

Place those into the same bowl that the chicken got put in. Crack your 3 eggs into your pot and quickly scramble those, once those are done put them in the bowl as well.

Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pot and get your cold, left over(day old) rice and add it in, use all the extra sauce that you have stored away in a cup to season the rice with. Add in a little at a time, you don't have to use all of the sauce bc it can make the rice sauggie. Stir Fry the rice, it doesn't have to get black, just stir it and cook it as much as you like the longer you cook it the drier it will be. I suggest tasting the rice at different stages to see if it is at the tenderness you prefer.

Once the rice is cooked to where you like it add in all the veggies and mix it around. Taste it and if you think you need to add any of the extra sauce you can or you can just add more soy sauce!

Hope you enjoy this as much as my family does, it cooks really fast and you can be done with this entire thing start to finish in about 10 minutes!
