Chicken Fried Rice 2

(Photo courtesy of ME!)

This is what I made myself for dinner tonite, it doesn't look all that great, but Chinese food just isn't all that photogenic. If you're interested, the recipe is below (Caution! I don't like to measure, so everything is approximate, basically just add it till it looks good.)

This is really simple, just make sure everything is cooked, and then add it in the order it is listed below on High, stirring almost constantly, let each ingredient cook to nearly the desired tenderness before adding the next.

  • 2 Tbls Sesame Oil
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed (cook completely before adding next ingredient)
  • 1/3 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped (and rinsed, duh!)
  • Half a bag of peas and carrots
  • Half a bag of bean sprouts (or until it looks pretty, don't cook these too long)
  • 3 cups of rice (precooked amount, make sure you cook it before adding it.)
  • 4 eggs, pre-scrambled
  • Add low sodium soy sauce until it reaches that desired color
  • Pepper to taste
I like to eat it with some chinese hot mustard, it adds lots of flavor with a small amount of calories.

Canada Bus Decapitation

I haven't posted in awhile, but this really got my attention.

The story is very disturbing.
