Great easy recipe. Kids love it too. I added some bacon and chopped onion for extra flavor.

I made this to go along with some plain chicken. I din't add the peas since my kids would not have eaten it. I didn't want to dirty another pan so I just made a whole/well in the middle of the rice when it was in the pan (I pushed it to the sides) and then dropped the egg in the middle, scrambled it and let it cook, scrambling it the whole time, and then mixed it in with the surrounding rice. Worked great.
