Fried Rice

For dinner, we all wanted to enjoy some yummy Chinese food. I paired this fried rice with sweet and sour chicken and it was a huge hit with the family. You can add ham, pork,  or chicken to this dish to make a meal out of it if you aren’t wanting to make the sweet and sour chicken.



  • 3 cups cooked white rice
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 packet fried rice seasoning (optional) *this can be found by the dry “mixes” or spices in your grocery store typically
  • Shredded cooked Chicken or Pork (optional)



  1. On medium heat, heat the oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add the peas/carrots, onion, and garlic. Cook until tender.
  3. Lower the heat to low and push the mixture to the side. Pour eggs into other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled.
  4. Add in the rice, soy sauce,  seasoning (if using), and chicken/pork.
  5. Mix together well and cook until thoroughly heated through. Serve!

    The spice packet is found at the grocery store near the “packet” type spices. Its labelled “fried rice”. In my grocery store, its by the chili dry mix, pesto dry mix, italian dry mix, etc.
    Hope that helps. It is optional in this recipe, just helps add a bit more flavor!! Enjoy!! : )

    My husband loves these and I tried to figure out how to make the spice packet but I have never figured it out so I just continue to buy them. He usually gets his fried rice when we have leftover rice on the weekends 🙂

    This recipe is “Chicken Fried Rice” & nowhere in the recipe is chicken mentioned! Strange!

  5. Kristin says:

    We actually labelled the recipe “fried rice” since you can choose to make it with or without meat. In the picture, we used chicken, but we have also made it without meat before. It is really up to the person making it, 🙂

    You can do without that “seasoning packet” most likely full of artificial ingredients or something not healthy. It’s just as good without the packet.

    Very finely shredded cabbage (Napa Cabbage) makes a great addition, with added texture and flavor!
