Easy Fried Rice

the back of a SUN BIRD fried rice seasoning packet


1 packet Sun Bird Fried Rice seasoning packet (they're about 60 cents)
1/3 cup chopped, cooked chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, or fish if desired
2 Tbsp canola oil
3 cups cold, cooked rice (white, brown, or instant)
3 green onions, sliced small
2 tsp soy sauce (but we always use more)
2 or 3 eggs beaten
1 cup frozen peas (or peas and diced carrots), cooked

Earlier in the day, cook the rice. For regular rice, boil 3 cups water and then add 1 1/2 cups rice. Turn on low and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and place in fridge on a hotpad.

About 15 minutes before the sweet and sour chicken is ready, start cooking the fried rice.

In a large skillet, heat oil (about medium temperature). Add onions and cold rice. Stir around to break up rice. Scramble eggs in a small pan. Add eggs to rice.
Add seasoning packet and soy sauce. Stir to mix in seasoning. At the end, at peas (or peas and carrots) and meat (if desired). Final product. If I don't have ham, I don't put it in. It is really good with it though. Serve with desired main dish. We like to serve it with sweet and sour chicken.
