Delicious Chicken Fried Rice

Updated: Jun 1, 2021

Do you ever have those times when you crave Chinese takeout? For me I mostly crave it badly on the weekends when I'm home alone and don't feel like going anywhere. Most weekends are a mental tug of war between craving Chinese takeout or a homemade Italian pasta dish with tomatoes for me. At the same time, I feel the laziest when it comes to cooking something on the weekends and don't like doing anything that will take more than 20 minutes. In my experience, I've found that the times when my stomach is the most desperate for food can be the moments when I come up with a great lunch or dinner under pressure. This recipe came from a lazy Sunday night where I was so hungry that I didn't have the energy or patience to do more than a 20 minute dinner. If you love Chinese takeout food and want something quick to cook on those lazy weekends, try this recipe!
