    Default needing ideas

    I have leftover rice and leftover boneless skinless chicken breast. does anyone have any ideas what I can do with this so no one know this is leftover?

    no one, but me, will eat leftovers and it drives me insane...LOL I think I was already there.

    thanks in advance for any and all ideas.

    How about Fried Rice?

    Fried Rice

    2 Tablespoons Oil
    2 Eggs
    4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
    1 clove Garlic, minced
    2 cups of cooked meat (Chicken, Beef, Pork ....), cut into strips or chunks
    2 carrots, shredded
    1/2 cup fresh, frozen or canned Peas
    2 cups cooked Rice
    2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar

    Mix together 2 tablespoons of soy sauce with the eggs and beat well. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok. Add egg to pan. Swirl and scrape egg to cook, basically you are scrambling this, but do not over cook it. You want this to error on the side of not done because you will be adding this back to the pan later on. Remove egg from pan and set aside.

    Add garlic, carrots, peas, and rice to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender and rice is starting to brown. Add the egg back to the pan along with the remaining soy sauce and the rice vinegar and meat. Let cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add more soy sauce to taste.

    Serve and enjoy! Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia

    Virginia-your fried rice idea and recipe is spot on!! Thanks for sharing it!

    Casseroles, stir fry dishes, pot pies, quiche, empanadas, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or soups are also options. The possibilities are endless...

    We either make fried rice or we store extra cooked rice in the freezer (defrosts just fine) when we have left overs. Fried rice is a big hit over here. I really like you recipe Virginia. I will probably give it a try this week. THANKS!!!
