Emily's "Everything" Fried Rice

You can basically chuck anything you want in here - leftovers, hidden veggies, you name it!  It's a quick & easy throw together supper but still super tasty.

Ingredients (serves 2 adults & 2 kids in our house!)
175g basmati rice
1 small onion, peeled & diced
Half a red pepper, diced
1 egg (beaten)
Cup of peas
Cup of sweetcorn
1 spring onion
1 chicken breast, diced or cut into strips
1 cup of frozen cooked prawns
1 tbsp light soy sauce

Cook the rice, drain & set aside.

Heat some oil in a wok (I tried this in a frying pan but it just isn't big enough, and ends up spilling over the sides!).  Add the onion & red pepper and cook for around 5 mins.  Add the chicken, prawns, peas & sweetcorn (my peas were frozen, my corn wasn't - they were both fine) and the spring onion.  Cook for around 4-5 mins, or until you are sure the chicken is cooked through.  Add the egg and stir through.  Do this on a high heat but keep it moving - it will become like scrambled egg. 

When everything is cooked, add a large knob of butter and the cooked rice and the soy sauce, and stir everything together for 2-3 mins, still on a high heat & again keep it all moving.

Serve immediately. although I can confirm this is just as tasty reheated the next day!
