Ready in 1 hour

Decided to combine my love of paella and fried rice and see what happened--I loved it It's an easy recipe to mix and match with what you like. You might want to cook the rice ahead of time as it needs to cool and that can take awhile


1 1/2 cups rice uncooked
12 ounces peas and carrots frozen
4 Eggs; beaten
3 green onions
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 pound shrimp
1/2 pound crab
3 chicken breasts

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Cook rice adding 3 cups water. Chill Rice to room temperature. In separate pan, scramble eggs and break into small pieces. Cook chicken and leave a little pink to finish cooking in rice.

Melt butter in big frying pan or wok. Add green onions. Add rice and and then soy sauce a tablespoon at a time to taste and consistency in rice. (4 tablespoons of soy sauce was just an estimate) Add remaining ingredients and cook over high to med high heat for 6-8 min stirring and flipping constantly. ( I liked to have the shrimp and crab cook in the rice so make sure all the pieces get underneath the rice and are done or cook in separate pan and add to rice)
