Spicy Chicken Fried Rice With Peanuts

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CaliforniaJan

From Cooking Light. It isn't too spicy as written, but you can always make adjustments by using less crushed red pepper to suit your tastes. If you want to shave time off the prep, use the boil-in-bag brown rice available at many stores.
