Meal Prep Sunday – Chicken Fried Rice

Meal Prep - Chicken Fried Rice | The Mother Cooker

Happy Sunday, here with another meal prep recipe for you. This chicken fried rice is super easy, super tasty and rivals the Chinese take-out without all the added Monosodium Glutamate. It might be missing a certain level of unami, but it tastes yummy all the same. This will last for 3 days in the fridge, don’t tempt it any longer because rice is the biggest culprit of food poisoning. Make sure you portion this off as soon as it’s cooked, so the rice can cool as quick as possible. We won’t re-heat this, it’ll be eaten cold as you can’t re-heat egg.
