My friend Ann recently told me that I should start blogging about the food I make because when I post pictures of it on Facebook, it all looks really good. Well, this is what I made last night and it IS really good. It’s from Everyday With Rachael Ray - one of my favorite magazines to get every month. It’s called “Gingery Chicken Fried Rice.” Here’s the recipe:

ingredients:

  • tablespoons vegetable oil
  • eggs, beaten
  • cups diced roast chicken (preferably dark meat)
  • scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 1 1/4 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • cups cold cooked long-grain rice
  • 1/2 cup thawed frozen peas
  • tablespoons soy sauce, plus more for serving
  • teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

directions:

  • Preheat a wok or cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add 2 tbsp. oil, swirl to coat the pan and add the eggs. Cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs are scrambled, 1 minute. Transfer the eggs to a plate. Wipe the pan clean and return to the heat.
  • Add the remaining 1/4 cup oil; swirl to coat. Add the chicken, scallion whites and ginger. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is golden, about 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and press into the pan. Cook, stirring and pressing, until the rice is sizzling, about 2 minutes.
  • Return the eggs to the pan; add the peas, 2 tbsp. soy sauce, the vinegar and sesame oil. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute. Serve with more soy sauce and the scallion greens.
