Fried Rice

In fine Chinese style, this delicious dish tastes just like the rice in your favorite restaurant.

Makes 8 servings

4          tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
¼        teaspoon garlic powder
¼        teaspoon ground ginger
4          teaspoons canola oil
1          cup liquid egg substitute or 2 eggs
8          ounces cooked chicken (2 cups), cut into small pieces* (I buy a rotisserie chicken which makes whipping up this dish so easy and fast!)
1          cup thinly sliced green onion
4          cups cooked white or brown rice (Uncle Ben's Rice in the bag only take 90 seconds to cook!)

Gather your ingredients.

In a small bowl or custard cup, combine soy sauce, garlic powder, and ginger. Set aside.

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add 1 teaspoon of the oil. Pour in egg substitute or scrambled egg, tilting pan to coat bottom evenly.

Cook until egg is set, then remove egg from pan and cut into bite-size pieces.  Set aside.

Add remaining oil to skillet. Add chicken, green onion, and rice. Cook, stirring, until well blended.

Stir in soy sauce mixture and egg.

Cook, stirring constantly, until rice is hot and sizzly.

*If desired, substitute cooked shrimp for the chicken.
