Do you love fried rice? Me too!! In fact, it is by far, my most favorite dish to order from any and every Chinese restaurant my family goes to!
Over the years, I have loved to make my tried and true Chicken Fried Rice. It is the skillet version, so if you don’t have an Instant Pot, check that recipe out HERE!
Now that I have a slight (okay, major) obsession for my Instant Pot, I knew I’d be able to make Chicken Fried Rice even faster in it!
After a few trial and errors along the way, this recipe was finally a success! In fact, it went perfectly with my Baked Egg Rolls.
All three of my kids ate it up happily as well, although if you ask my daughter, she would probably say she disliked it until she picked all the peas out, haha!
If you want to try a one pot, quick and simple Chicken Fried Rice recipe, this is it! Packed with flavor, chicken, rice, and veggies…you can serve it as is or add egg rolls, salad, or fruit as a side dish!
If you want to change it up, use ham or pork in place of the chicken! The possibilities are endless and you can make it how you please!
