Frugal Recipe: Easy Chicken Fried Rice

I don’t know about you all, but we love Chinese Food! Takeout can be on the expensive side, so why not prepare it at home for a fraction of the price?

I have been making this Chicken Fried Rice recipe for several years now and it is always a hit! It is also super easy peas and my husband and boys just love it! Winking smile


3-4 green onions chopped

2-3 cloves of garlic

3-4 large eggs

1 teaspoon salt

1 package of Cooked Chicken Breast. You could even use leftover Rotisserie Chicken.

pepper to taste

4 Tbsp. of oil

4 cups cold cooked rice set aside

Soy Sauce as needed

You can also add in peas/carrots if you prefer



Beat eggs lightly with salt and pepper set aside. 

Heat a wok or pan and place 2 tbsp. of the oil inside. Saute the Garlic in the oil for just a few minutes. Add your eggs and stir fry just until they are lightly scrambled. Take out and set aside. 

Place the cooked rice that you have set aside into the wok with the remaining oil. Mix just until rice is broken apart, then add soy sauce. You will need to be careful here. Add enough until the rice is flavored but be careful not to add too much as it can get too salty tasting. Add in the cooked chicken just to heat through.

Add back the scrambled eggs that you have set aside. Add in the chopped green onions and mix thouroughly. 

Serve hot and Enjoy!
