Chicken Fried Rice

I changed a few things based on what I had on hand and what I think tastes good! Hubby’s approves and doesn’t even miss the rice 🙂

1/2 tablespoon sesame oil (I put more in for flavor along with a few sprinkles of fish oil but it’s not necessary)
1 onion, chopped
4 cubes and cooked chicken breasts
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 large carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped (I hate celery so I don’t use it)
1 large red bell pepper, diced
3/4 cup fresh pea pods, halved
1/2 large green bell pepper, diced
6 cups cooked white rice (I subbed quinoa for rice for more protein)
3 eggs
1/3 cup soy sauce

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until soft, then add chicken and 2 tablespoons soy sauce and stir-fry for 5 to 6 minutes.
Stir in carrots, celery, red bell pepper, pea pods and green bell pepper and stir-fry another 5 minutes. Then add rice and stir thoroughly.
Finally, stir in scrambled eggs and 1/3 cup soy sauce, heat through and serve hot.
