Easy Chicken Fried Rice –

Once this recipe makes its way into your regular rotation, it’s a cinch to switch things up. Here we use basmati rice, but you can substitute for whichever grain suits your frying fancy. Brown rice, jasmine rice, multi-grain rice, or short-grain rice all are suitable options, as long as it’s pre-cooked and refrigerated before you get going. You can also vary your protein. Trade chicken break or thighs for shrimp, beef, or pork for variety.
