Love being involved in a sponsored post with Success Rice.
After a really fun response to the Carbonara Rice with Chicken recipe I posted a few months ago, I thought I would share another family favorite. I would eat this every. single. night. if I could. It is that good.
Plus, it is a quick way to get dinner on the table so your family can spend some quality time together.
I love Chinese Food, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Cashew Chicken and especially House Fried Rice. There is a "hole in the wall" Chinese restaurant on 3rd South here in Provo that has THE best fried rice in town.
So instead of stressing over what to make for dinner tonight, I offer you the best fried rice recipe you can make at home. And believe me, I have tried many a fried rice recipes. On the table in 20 minutes. You can't beat that.
Two quick side notes: You don't have to use chicken and shrimp in this dish. It is fantastic without meat at all. Use it as a side dish if you want. And, if you don't like shrimp, or don't have chicken on hand, use what ever you have. It is great with ham, beef, chicken and shrimp. My favorite is to have all four meats, but I don't always have ham and beef on hand.
Second side note: This dish comes together very VERY fast. So it is best if you have all the ingredients prepped and ready before you start. Makes everything easier and faster. I have spelled out the steps one by one, but don't be overwhelmed. It is crazy easy to make.
Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice.
3 Cloves of Garlic (you can use more if you really like Garlic)
6 Tablespoons Butter, Divided
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 Medium Onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 Cup Frozen Peas and Carrots
1 1/2 Cups Cooked Chicken/Shrimp/Ham and or Beef
3 Eggs, beaten
3 Cups cooked Success Rice White Rice, Chilled (When I am short on time, I just throw the rice in warm. Comes out great)
4-5 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (or more to taste. I usually use 5-6 tablespoons)
2 Green Onions or Scallions, chopped
Salt and Pepper
Cook your Success Rice. It boils in the bag, so it is quick, ready in 10 minutes and really easy. When it is done, open it up so it can start cooling down. Just toss the bag in the freezer to speed up the cooling process. Or you can spread it out on a cookie sheet covered in foil (no messy clean up) or on a cutting board. You can also put it in the freezer to really speed up the cool down process.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave. Add the garlic and lemon juice to the melted butter and stir. Set the mixture aside.
Chop the onion and green onions. Measure out the peas/carrots, meat, rice and soy sauce.
Beat the eggs in a small bowl.
In a large non-stick skillet, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
Add the onions and sauté until transluscent. It usually takes about 5 minutes.
Add the peas and carrots and cook for 3 minutes
Then add your diced chicken, shrimp, etc... Cook for 1 minute
Push all of the ingredients to one side of the skillet to slow the cooking process. I like to slightly offset my pan on the burner, so the food isn't on the heat.
On the empty side of the skillet, add the eggs. Season with salt and pepper and scramble as they cook.Add the veggies to the eggs once they are starting to set. Move the garlic and veggies off to the side also.
Add the garlic mixture to the pan and use a spatula to break it up (the butter will have firmed up a bit.) Cook for about a minute or so. Don't over cook the garlic or it will get bitter.
Add the cold, cooked rice and mix it in with the other ingredients.
Add the soy sauce and stir to combine for about 2-3 minutes.
Add the green onions and stir.
Now is the time to taste test. Check to see if you want more soy sauce. I always want more soy sauce.
Remove from the skillet and serve.
Eat and Enjoy. I promise your family will ask for seconds!
