Chicken broccoli fried rice recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken and leftover rice! Using this easy fried rice recipe, boring leftovers are transformed into a new, hot and yummy main dish!
For the chicken, you can use rotisserie chicken or any leftover chicken dish, or you can just quickly cook a chicken breast just for this chicken fried rice recipe (individually frozen chicken breasts are perfect for this). For the rice, I always cook extra rice using a rice cooker – rice leftovers from the day before make even better fried rice than freshly cooked rice! If you don’t have a rice cooker, another great easy way to cook rice is cooking rice in a microwave. For the broccoli, you can use thawed frozen broccoli, leftover oven roasted broccoli or cook fresh broccoli in a microwave.
