Chicken Fried Rice

I've been seeing a lot of recipes for various Fried Rices going around on the internet. Since I love a little fried rice, I decided to throw together my own little concoction. It was super quick and easy to make and Alexa had no problem eating it.

1 Cup cooked chicken, diced (I used the leftovers from a whole chicken I made earlier in the week.)
1/2 Cup (or more) mixed vegetables (I used some frozen peas, frozen green beans and cooked fresh carrots)
1 scallion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
2 Cups of cooked rice
1 teaspoon vegetable boullion
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

Add 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of vegetable boullion to a saucepan, bring to a boil. Add 1 Cup of uncooked rice. Cook for 13-15 minutes or until tender.

In a hot frying pan (or wok if you have one), add the coconut oil. Allow to melt and swirl it around the pan. Add all of the vegetables, including the scallion and the garlic. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes. Scramble the egg and canola/vegetable oil in a seperate bowl. When the vegetables are cooked push them to the side of the pan. Add the egg/oil combo and using a spatula mix like you would while making scrambled eggs. Once cooked, add the chicken and two cups of the cooked rice to the pan. Add the soy sauce and mix very well. Serve hot. Makes 4 servings.
