If you are a regular follower of this blog, you already know how life tends to get hectic and there are nights when I rummage through my pantry, fridge or freezer for inspiration, as much as ingredients for dinner.
Generally, summer is somewhat of a more relaxed time in our household and dinners are better planned and executed. Days are less chaotic and consist of more free time instead of the usual pickups at three different schools and the stress over three different homework assignments needing to be finished, but there is always that one exception to summer bliss…
This stir fried rice is simple and easy as well as satisfying as a complete meal on a busy night anytime of the year.
STIR FRIED RICE
4 cups of steamed rice of your choice
1 lbs chicken tenders, cut into bite size pieces
1 bell pepper, cut to strips
1 onion, cut into strips
1 cup carrots, cut into diagonal slices
2 stalks of green onions, cut into diagonal slices
2 cups of broccoli florets
sesame oil for cooking
On Sauté-Then-Simmer, add 1 tblsp sesame oil and sauté chicken until cooked. Remove and set aside. Sauté the rest of the vegetables for 3-4 minutes or until cooked to your liking and add to cooked chicken. Add a few dashes of soy sauce to the vegetable chicken mix and toss.
Place 1 tblsp sesame oil into the rice cooker and scramble both eggs, stir in the rice and the vegetable chicken mix. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and add soy sauce to your liking.
