Super Easy Fried Rice w/ chicken recipe

 

We eat a lot of Tex-Mex inspired meals around here so this Asian favored dish was a yummy departure from the norm.  I used leftover chopped chicken that I cooked the other night and instant brown rice.

 

This Easy Fried Rice Recipe got 2 thumbs up from the hubby and daughter and only one thumb up from my son.  He complained about the peas, but I fed him a few bites with the peas hidden and he never even knew they were there! He only copmplained because he could see them.
