As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

It’s 6pm. You’re just now realizing that you didn’t plan anything for dinner. I totally know the feeling.

You really don’t want to go to the grocery store, or even to pick up takeout. You’re kind of tired of eating cereal for dinner.

Instead of picking up the phone, go check your fridge. I’ll bet you have everything you need for this easy Chinese chicken fried rice all ready to go. I mean, maybe not the cold rice, but I’ll share my little trick for that. No worries.

Just whip up some microwaveable rice and pop it in the freezer for 20 minutes to chill while you start the chicken. It’s not going to be quite as good as day-old rice, but it’ll do in a pinch.

Add your rice to the hot pan and let it cook around for a bit before moving it out of the way and cracking in some eggs. Drizzle the eggs with some soy sauce and start scrambling them up.

Once your eggs are cooked, everything goes back in the pan to get cooked together with a bit of soy sauce and sriracha.
