How to Make Cheap Fried Rice

This recipe for Fried Rice with Chicken and Veggies is the perfect way to use up leftover rice. It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to cook, so it’s not only a money saver but a time saver too! This meal feeds four people at $1.10 per serving for a total cost of only $4.40 for the entire meal.

Step 1:  GET YOUR INGREDIENTS — You will need 4 cups cold cooked rice, 4 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 clove of minced garlic (or 1 teaspoon garlic from a jar), 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion, 2 cups cooked and cubed chicken, 2 cups cooked veggies of your choice, 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil.

Step 2:  COOK THE FRIED RICE — Heat a wok or large non-stick skillet over high heat. When oil starts to get hot turn the heat to medium high. Add the garlic and green onions to the oil and stir. Add chicken and vegetables and mix well. Quickly add rice and continue to stir until rice is separated and coated with oil and mixed evenly with chicken and veggies. Sprinkle soy sauce over rice and stir until distributed well throughout rice.

Step 3:  SERVE THE FRIED RICE — Split the fried rice evenly into 4 serving dishes. You may want to serve with an egg roll. You could also serve tea to complete the meal. Enjoy!
