Sometimes dinner takes hours to prepare, with meticulous mis en place, fifteen different steps, more pots than burners, and ingredients so expensive you wince at the check-out.
Other times, it’s the exact opposite. Like one of our weeknight must haves. A favorite of both my husband and my youngest: homemade chicken fried rice.
Its presentation? Messy. Its ingredients? Cheap. Its difficulty level? Easy.
Bonus: my chicken fried rice is often made from leftovers. LEFTOVERS. Chicken from a couple nights ago, rice from Sunday dinner, the odd green onion or two left in the crisper drawer. Chicken fried rice is like the “kitchen sink” of dinners, and I love it for that! Feel free to add other veggies in when you saute the onions: snow peas, regular peas, carrots and broccoli all work great!
