Because I have to make a lot, and I don’t have a skillet that large, I take the veggies out, then cook the rest of the ingredients.
8 cups left over rice – How does one have 8 cups of left over rice?! I plan ahead, and make extra rice when we’re having rice for supper. I also like to keep cooked rice in the freezer.
3 cups of cooked chicken – what ever meat you have left-over, use less or more, whatever you have
1 tablespoon of oil
I heat the rice and meat in oil until warm.
When they are warm, I push the rice and meat to one side. then I scrambled 3 eggs. If your using less rice, use less eggs. You can leave the eggs out, but they make a nice filler, especially if you don’t have a lot of leftover meat.
Once the eggs are cooked, mix the eggs into the rice. Add Soy Sauce to taste. I used about 1/3 of a cup tonight, as that’s all I had.
If your making a smaller amount, your vegetables will be mixed in with the rice. I have to mix the veggies and the rice mixture in a large bowl.
We love stir-fry, and it’s a great way to use leftovers. What’s great about stir-fry, is the family doesn’t even recognize the left-overs. It’s a new dish to them. And I can feed lots of people for very little.
