Recipe by Rebecca Farlow

This recipe uses leftover baked chicken breasts and rice with vegetables to create a whole new meal the next day. You can also replace the chicken with leftover ham and it works very nicely.

I had leftover chicken, rice AND carrots so this was the perfect recipe! I also added frozen peas and corn. I also started the dish off my sauteing some onion and fresh garlic for a boost of flavor. Then I finished it off with a few turns of soy sauce. about a tsp of Oyster sauce and a little sesame oil. I don't think this qualifies as fried rice without any Asian seasonings though. . .
