Recipe 8: Chicken Fried Rice

I have made Chicken Fried Rice before from a packet but I have to say that this one was not only more healthy but actually. I would recommend that you cut the chicken smaller than I did but other than that it was really good.

I used 15 ounces of chicken rather than 12 because when I weighed the two breast I had, they were 15. Hubby didn't mind the extra chicken, trust me :) He rated it a 10 :)
