Add rice (and precooked chicken, if using) and cook, breaking up clumps and stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add bowl contents, soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, and salt.

This dish was very well liked by the whole family. And Yes the kids do love it. I used all fresh vegetables and seasoned the pieces of chicken so the prep time was longer than stated. Well worth the work. I used less oil as I was using a not stick pan and I used a little less ginger than the recipe called for knowing my family is not fond of it but added it to my own portion since I love it. Read More

The recipe is well-written easy to follow and quick to put together. We used six cups of Birdseye's stir fry vegetable mix (a bag and a half of the 14.4oz packages) which was easier and faster than chopping the veggies suggested in the recipe. The dish was tasty but not better than recipes we use that call for day-old rice. Read More

YES YES YES full of flavor an easy to make. There is more then one step but still easy. I steamed my veggies except the pepper and onion I did those as posted. Steaming made one less step and still had so much flavor. I made this as posted adding steaming and a little extra ginger and garlic we are in love. So much flavor so much taste. Making this again isn't the question the question is when can I make this again. I used red cabbage golden beets carrots and corn fresh from the cob. Read More

In today's world where we buy and prepare the protein (chicken pork beef etc) in bulk at one time to be efficient this meal was quick easy to follow and infinitely better for our family than take out. Particularly on the wallet. Read More

I made this last night without the chicken. I used chopped Brussels sprouts squish and zucchini along with the red pepper. I also scrambled an egg in butter before adding the rice. The recipe only calls for 2 Tbs of reduced Sodium soy sauce; I added at least twice that. Read More

This turned out really well. But I had to cook the vegetables and chicken much longer than the directions. For instance the carrots/broccoli etc. I had took cook about 20-25 minutes to get them to the point we like them. I did not have some of the veggies it calls for so I used what I had on hand - peppers onion snap peas carrots broccoli cauliflower. And then added some frozen peas and corn (because I love those veggies). Such a good flavor! Added a tad more soy sauce too. Read More

Lots of veggies for the amount of chicken but you honestly don't miss the meat with all that's going on. Great balance of tastes not too salty. Didn't have green onion carrots or sesame oil. Subbed frozen peas and Tyson pre-cooked chicken (partially cooked in microwave in advance). Used powdered ginger instead of fresh. Will definitely make it again! Read More

Yesterday was the first time I tried this recipe. I eliminated the salt it wasn't even missed. When I make it again and I will I'll try to cut back on the oil a bit. It was full of flavor and wonderful. It is a bit labor intensive but well worth the time. My husband gave it a thumbs up too. Read More
