Quick & Easy Fried Rice

I love fried rice! What I do not love is how much one small, white take out box with a metal handle is. It’s almost nine dollars for a box of rice around here, which is just an insane price to pay. I did a bit of searching online for Fried Rice recipes and really couldn’t find one I thought I our family would enjoy. So instead I winged it!

I wanted something that would not cost an arm and a leg, would still taste good and could use up some of our left overs. What I ended up with, is a new family favorite!

4 cups rice, left over works best
4-5 left over chicken tenderloins
1 cup left over vegetables
1 medium onion
1 tablespoon garlic salt
2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup soy sauce

Combine butter, onions, garlic salt and vegetables in large frying pan. Stir fry till tender. Then crack both eggs into pan and scramble, mixing into the vegetable mixture.
