The trick to this chicken fried rice dish is using day-old rice (freshly cooked rice will turn it into glop). Make it today: Cook rice, spread it on a baking sheet and cool in the fridge.


Ingredients

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 3 eggs , beaten
  • 4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts , diced
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame , thawed
  • 1 red bell pepper , diced
  • 3 cups day-old cooked rice
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

Instructions

  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add canola oil, then eggs. Stir often to scramble eggs until softly set, about 1 min. Transfer to a small bowl.
  • ADD sesame oil to pan, then onion and garlic. Cook until onion is soft, about 3 min. Add chicken and cook until no pink remains, about 2 min. Increase heat to medium-high. Add edamame and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until peppers are tender, about 4 min. Stir in rice and eggs, then drizzle with soy. Cook until rice is warmed, 2 min.
