Chicken and Fried Rice One Pan Meal, Fried Rice and Chicken recipe, Easy Chicken and Fried Rice

Now that school and sports are back in full swing making dinner some nights can be a little hectic. I barely have time to remember my own name let alone make a gourmet 10 course meal and wash all the dishes that come with it. 

We love Chinese food and I have been working up the courage to attempt it at home for awhile. This dish was born out of that curiosity, the necessity for something easy, and the loathing of a lot of dishes. 

Chicken and Fried Rice

Ingredients

  • 2 cups leftover rice or instant rice
  • Chicken thighs cut into pieces (about 6 thighs)
  • Frozen vegetables- I used a stir fry mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Grapeseed or Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup of Teriyaki Sauce or Soy Sauce
  • 14.4oz can of chicken broth

Directions

  1. Heat oil in the Ozeri 12in Green Earth Pan until hot
  2. Add eggs and stir until cooked
  3. Break apart eggs into smaller pieces (think scrambled eggs)
  4. Add chicken and cook until browned
  5. Add chicken broth and Teriyaki sauce, bring to a boil
  6. Stir in vegetables and rice; cover the pan and let cook for 8-10 minutes or until everything is heated through

The Ozeri Green Earth 12in Pan is joining my list of favorites. I have already reviewed the 8in and the 10in Ozeri pans, loving them both. There was no doubt that the big one, the 12in beast, would also find a place on my love list. I don’t always need to use such a big pan, but it is ideal for a stir-fry of any type, one pan meals, etc. 

Ozeri Green Earth Pans are completely non-stick without all the toxic chemicals found in traditional non-stick pans. The sturdy handle, deep sides, and large cooking surface helped me to keep all the recipe in the pan and not flung out onto the stove or countertops! This pan also has the textured cooking surface allowing the food to float, which means less cooking grease. Cleanup is easy and every Ozeri product is backed with a lifetime guarantee. You can see why I adore these pans.

You can buy the Ozeri Green Earth 12in Pan and other Ozeri products on Amazon today!

Morton Salt MommyParty #MortonSaltGirl100

Morton Salt MommyParty #MortonSaltGirl100

Morton Salt is a household name. I remember growing up and there was always Morton Salt on the table for each meal. We cooked with it, baked with it, and used it in our water system. When I grew up I switched from the regular table salt to the Morton Sea Salt. Who knew that after all these years of using Morton Salt I would be helping to celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Morton Salt Girl?!

Morton Salt MommyParty #MortonSaltGirl100

Morton Salt MommyParty #MortonSaltGirl100

To celebrate the birthday, I had everyone play a little Morton Salt Trivia game. Winner was going to take home a goodie bag for a spa day at home, including Morton’s salt latest product – Epson Salt. We all learned a lot from the trivia game and if Salt is one of the choices, then it is always the right answer!

Did you know that Morton Salt is the originator of the phrase “When it rains, it pours?” Over a century ago, when Morton was marketing a new product, a salt that would flow freely even in damp weather, they ran ads featuring the Morton Salt Girl and “Even in rainy weather, it flows freely.” This was then shortened to “When It Rains It Pours.” Cool right? 

Morton Salt included several delicious sounding recipes in the party kit. I finally decided after a lot of help and voting, on the Honey Orange Chicken & Spring Greens.

Morton Salt MommyParty #MortonSaltGirl100, Easy Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1lb chickn strip tenders cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided 
  • 1 teaspoon Morton Coarse Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme divide
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained (reserve 2 tablespoons of juice)
  • 1 cup prepared honey-mustard dressing
  • 10 ounces baby spring greens
  • 1 Granny Smith or Fuji apple cored and thinly sliced

Directions:

  • Brush chicken with 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • Season with 1/2 tsp Morton Kosher Salt & 1/4 tsp thyme
  • Cover & Refrigerate for 30mins
  • In medium skillet, heat remaining olive oil
  • Saute chicken pieces until it is cooked through & juices run clear
  • In small bowl, combine garlic, reserved juice from oranges, remaining Morton Kosher Salt, & remaining thyme with honey-mustard dressing
  • Drizzle cooked chicken with 2 tbsp dressing mixture, set aside
  • In large bowl, mix greens with oranges and apple slices; lightly toss 1/3 cup dressing mixture
  • Top greens with chicken 
  • Serve immediately with remaining honey-mustard dressing mixture

I received free In The Raw products in order to host the In The Raw MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.Monk Fruit In The Raw #InTheRawParty

This MommyParty was all about the delicious, no calorie, natural sweetener Monk Fruit In The Raw.

I have been a fan of Monk Fruit for awhile now. It has a great taste (no bitter aftertaste), sweetens like sugar, doesn’t add calories to my day. Love it! This party was the perfect way to get my friends to try it out and make believers out of them.

At the beverage bar, guests could make their favorite hot drink or try the iced green tea, sweetening them up with Monk Fruit In The Raw packets.

For dessert, I made the Monk Fruit In The Raw Recipe- Best Chewy Brownies

Monk Monk Fruit In The Raw, natural no calorie sweetener, MommyParty, #InTheRawParty, Brownie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces dark (60-62 percent) chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (I used Organic White Sugar In The Raw)
  • 1/2 cup of Monk Fruit In The Raw Bakers Bag
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-pupose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I omitted these due to allergies)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray (I used olive oil)
  • Melt the butter. Add chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes.
  • Using a whisk, stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. 
  • Whisk in sugar and Monk Fruit In The Raw Baker’s Bag
  • One at a time, whisk in eggs
  • Stir in vanilla
  • Mix in flour
  • Stir in nuts
  • Spread the batter evenly in pan
  • Bake 22mins or until  toothpick inserted comes out almost clean
  • Let stand until completely cool

It’s not a party without at least one game and a lot of laughs. The S.W.E.E.T. Word Game made us exercise our brains. And it was a lot harder than it looks!

This Map of Neverland was a first for me. I typically draw something for the kids’ parties but this involved a more extensive process to bring the map to life. After sketching the initial borders, I began to outline, blend, shade, and color. Then I used tea bags to age the paper. Final step was to very carefully burn the edges. The kids loved the end result and it now finds a home in our Pirate and Mermaid bathroom.
