Host, Andrew “Kappy” Kaplan and his twins Leo + Ella share one of their family favorites. This is one of those, “what do we have in the fridge” type of meals. As long as you have some leftover white rice, you can use this recipe for inspiration and make it your own.

Chicken Nugget Fried Rice

Serves 2 kids

1-2 tablespoons oil or butter

1 ½ - 2 cups leftover white rice, bigger clumps separated with your hands

Kosher salt

½ cup cooked vegetables (such as carrots, onions, peas, broccoli, cauliflower), larger ones cut into small, bite-size pieces

2-4 chicken nuggets, cooked and cut into bite-size pieces

A couple small dashes of soy sauce or tamari, about 1 teaspoon

1 egg, scrambled in a little bowl

1. Place a medium size (10”) skillet over medium to medium high heat and add the oil or butter. Add the rice, season with salt and begin to cook. Toss, mix, and break up with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula every now and then for 3-4 minutes.

2. Add the vegetables and chicken and toss until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.

3. Add the soy sauce, toss again and stir in the scrambled egg until all of the fried rice is coated and the egg is cooked- this should only take about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Adjust seasoning and enjoy!
