- 1. Cook the rice based on package instructions.
Season the chicken with salt and black pepper. In a large wok or skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken and stir-fry until brown and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170 degrees F. Transfer chicken to a plate.

Stir-fry for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cooked rice and season with soy sauce and sesame oil. Add the cooked chicken and toss until everything is heated through.
- 3. Push the rice, chicken and vegetables to the side of the wok and pour in the egg. With a spatula or wooden spoon, scramble the egg, breaking it up into small curds.
- 4. Transfer the fried rice to a serving platter. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions.
