  • 3 TBS soy sauce
  • 5 tsp rice vinegar

  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 2 TBS vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken, cubed
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables

  • 1 head baby bok choy (or romaine lettuce), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 6 cups cold cooked rice 
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt/Pepper

In a small bowl, stir the soy sauce with the rice vinegar, sesame oil and sugar. Heat vegetable or olive oil in a large pot or wok. Add the diced chicken and stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute. Add the peas, carrots, mushrooms and bok choy, and stir-fry until tender. Add the eggs and scramble just until set.

Stir in the cooked rice, scallions, soy sauce mixture and stir-fry until the rice is hot. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.
