- 2 egg whites
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 cups diced cooked chicken breast

Stir in the chicken, soy sauce and remaining salt; cook for 1 minute. Add rice; stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Add eggs; heat through. Yield: 4 servings.

Reviews for Chicken Fried Rice for Four
"This was very close to authentic fried rice. I cooked the rice beforehand so this recipe came together very fast. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!"
"This was so close to a restaurant taste but far healthier for you! We used brown rice and maybe half the salt. Also used olive oil instead of cooking spray (just because we like olive oil) and carmelized the onions slightly. If we'd have had some bamboo shoots, it would have a perfect restaurant substitute! Thanks for the great recipe!!"
