{My Better Than Take-Out Chicken Fried Rice}

In a previous post I shared that when I was preparing to make the Better-Than-Takeout Chicken Fried Rice recipe I found on Pinterest, the blogger/at-home cook recommended this Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Recipe. Following the recommendation, I made {My Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken} in my Crock Pot and added the chicken to my fried rice-filled wok. {I heart my new wok! It just makes cooking more fun!}

I discovered I like to deviate when I’m creating, so here are my departures from the original recipe:

  • I used sliced green onions instead of one white chopped onion–this was nice for extra color and I think they are more fun to eat!
  • I substituted grape seed oil in place of sesame oil.
  • I removed the two cloves of garlic since my Italian hubby doesn’t like garlic {which is still perplexing considering his ancestors’ taste buds}; then I stirred garlic powder into my dish separately so that it still packed a bit more punch for me.

The result was a delicious home-cooked meal–when all I thought I wanted was takeout! I was pleasantly surprised {with my ability to make a yummy at-home version that included SO many ingredients for both recipes}! And the best part is that both of my boys liked it too!! Now I look forward to more better-than-takeout experiences at home! Speaking of home, this dish is a throw-back to before we moved in but I’m feeling quite settled in our new home now so I look forward to making good use of the new cooktop and oven!
