Fried Rice, Large Batch

"This is the recipe I use for Fried Rice when I make it at the school. I usually leave the rice separate from everything else because the kids eat more that way, you can use ground beef or diced chicken for the meat."

Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • 1. Cook rice in a large heavy pot.
  • 2. Bake chicken at 375 F for 35 minutes, or until fully cooked. Cool and dice. Can cut out this step by using cooked diced chicken. Or cook hamburger, rinse with hot water to get rid of excess fat.
  • 3. Defrost frozen vegetables and peas until they can be separated.
  • 4. Meanwhile chop green onion (or dice white onion), dice peppers, and slice celery.
  • 5. Set flat-top grill to 375 F spray with cooking spray. Fry green onions, peppers and veggies until cooked. Divide into 4 roasting pans.
  • 6. Scrap grill. Coat with cooking spray.
  • 7. Cook chicken 1/2 at a time and stir in half of the garlic.
  • 8. Add half of the rice and mix together, season with soy sauce.
  • 9. Divide between 2 pans. Repeat with remaining chicken, garlic and rice.
  • 10. Scrap grill again, spray with cooking spray and scramble fry eggs. Divide between the 4 pans and mix together.
  • NOTES: I found the kids eat more if the rice and everything else isn’t mixed.
  • Mix together meat, veggies, garlic, eggs, soy sauce. Leave rice plain. To serve: put rice on plate and top with meat mixture.

My passion is cooking, I have been baking and cooking since I was young. With 2 working parents it was essential. <br> <br>I am trained as a Professional Cook, even have a cooking certificate, lol. The best education I ever got was going to cooking school. <br> <br>I spent 3 years cooking in a gas station restaurant and all was well working there, but my heart still wanted to cook for kids. October 2008 I finally got the job I wanted. I been cooking for the kids for just over a year now and I love every day of it. The kids are great, some frustration, but it is all good, they are so smiley everyday, how could you not like work when you have a bunch of smiling faces looking at you. <br> <br>Another good thing about my job is I get the summers off. I had a pretty good summer, I got to tend to my garden and get a bunch of stuff into the freezers, I was given a second freezer this summer. I have been planning on eating mainly out of the freezers so we can save some extra cash for Christmas. <br> <br>I have plans on finding some nutrition courses that I can do online, just for dabbling in, it would sure help with cooking for the kids. <br> <br>I live with my hubby and 3 kids (11,6,5), and one cat, who is part in-door, out-door. <br> <br>I really want to get back into losing weight this school year, it has been 1 1/2 years since I lost about 15 pounds, I have maintained that loss though. I would still like to lose another 10 pounds.
