Best Ever Chicken Fried Rice

So one of Joel and Freddie's favorite cuisines has always been Chinese. For me, not so much. I don't like the heavy, saturating sauces and it's just never set well on my stomach. I don't mind if I cook it at home because I can regulate those things. But, I've never quite been able to master it.


Then we found this delightful recipe on our new fave recipe app! It was delicious. Freddie made it all himself by following the instructions on my phone. He was like "this really is better than takeout"! #momwin


I will be sharing recipes weekly on this blog- both from the app and from the ones we try and add to our faves. But, I will be sharing even more often in our fb group. Want our Cooking Club updates? Make sure and join our JPF Family Fb Group and subscribe to our blog below.

9. Move vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour egg on the other side. Scramble egg until cooked and mix with vegetables.
