Sriracha Chicken Fried Rice

18 Sep

I get excited when I have leftover chicken, really excited. Leftover chicken = chicken fried rice! Fried rice is a super quick meal that comes together in just 15 minutes but also uses up any leftovers in your fridge.

You can really work this recipe with whatever you have on hand. I used green onions and garlic, but you can use sweet onion, white onion, red onion or even no onion.

Throw in some scrambled eggs and peas, toss with tamari, hot sesame chili oil, and sriracha. This dish comes together with very little time and tastes amazing!
