Chicken Fried Rice

    We used regular green beans to save money - just cut them into smaller pieces and stir fried them a couple of extra minutes. It's wonderful - even my kids loved it including the vegetables! The leftovers the next day were a little dry, so I added just a bit of chicken broth when I re-heated it - scrumptious again!

    Almost everything needed to be cooked twice as long as recommended, so keep that in mind. I would also add a couple extra eggs, because they disappeared into everything else. The sauce/flavoring was decent, but nothing special. We threw in some corn that we had also. it would be great with some carrots. This is a great fallback recipe when you have some random vegetables that need to be used, but I wouldn't plan it out as part of a menu.

    This did not taste as good as take out to me, but maybe it was all the changes I had to make. My whole family seemed to like it quite well. My husband asked for seconds. I did not add that much hot sauce at first, because the kids don't like spicy food, but I added more for myself and it was really good then. I added two extra eggs, used shrimp instead of chicken and substituted the vegetables I had on hand, sugar snap peas and a carrot, pea and green bean mixture for the onion, haricots verts and bell pepper. I also did not have the chili-garlic sauce. So, I added minced onions and a little garlic powder, and used Frank's RedHot sauce.
