Simple Fried Rice Recipes

While your microwave does all the hard work, all you need to do is heat up a large skillet or wok. Next, add in some lightly beaten eggs and start scrambling until the eggs are softly cooked. When you’re done with the eggs, place them aside and reheat the oil for the veggies. Stir in your favorite Asian vegetable mix, some soy sauce, and pre-cooked chicken, and you’ve got yourself a complete meal!
