Here is my version of this classic dish – not that I have any claim to being an authority on what is “authentic” Chinese food. I am an authority, however, on what is super incredibly yummy. This rice gets my stamp of approval, with honors. It is better than takeout, and you can enjoy skipping all the mysterious, unhealthy parts of fast food.
4 c rice, prepared
1/2 lb boneless chicken breast, cooked and cut into bite-size pieces. or same amount of medium-size cooked shrimp.
1 c peas and carrots, frozen
