Kitchen Experiments: Forbidden Fried Rice


Earlier this week, I gave you a recipe for a Balsamic Soy Chicken. I purposely made an extra serving for lunch the next day. However, when it came time for lunch, the chicken and Forbidden Rice wasn't cutting it. I really wanted a vegetable. To see what I did for my latest kitchen experiment, read more.

The first thing I did was look through my cupboards. There wasn't much left, but I decided to take out two carrots, and some eggs. I peeled and finely shredded the carrots, and then in a separate bowl I lightly beat the eggs. I then threw the rice and chicken into a large skillet, heated it up until it was warm, then I tossed in the carrots, mixed that together, and finally I poured the egg mixture around it. I then scrambled it up, seasoning with salt and pepper as I went along.

The end result was a tasty — if not a bit odd-looking — black fried rice. It made for a delicious meal, and came together really quickly. I topped it off with a bit of sriracha sauce.

What do you think? What would you have whipped together?
