Quick Chicken Fried Rice


1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cups cooked white rice, cold
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup cooked, chopped chicken meat


In a small bowl, beat egg with water. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add egg and leave flat for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from skillet and cut into shreds.

Heat oil in same skillet; add onion and saute until soft. Then add rice, soy sauce, pepper and chicken. Stir fry together for about 5 minutes, then stir in egg. Serve hot.

NOTE: If I don't have any pre-cooked chicken, i just take 1 or 2 chicken breasts, cut them up into strips, and quickly stir fried them in a little olive oil and just a pinch of salt. Once they were almost cooked through, I splashed on a little bit of soy sauce and set them aside.

If you are using freshly cooked rice, rinse it under cold water until it is cool.

You could also add some green onion to this dish, red pepper, and red pepper flakes.
