Chicken "Fried" Rice

I've posted a lot the past few days.

Are you sick of me yet?

Do I have any readers......?

Anyway, I made WW Chicken "Fried" Rice this week!

You'll need:
1/2 pd ground chicken (I couldn't find any at Walmart...)
1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tbs teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp peanut oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 carrots, shredded
1 green bell pepper
6 scallions
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup thawed frozen peas (I didn't use these)

Boil and cook your rice...this will take about 15-20 minutes. I used those handy already-made bags!

While that's coming to a boil/cooking, get a small bowl to mix up some ingredients. Start with your chicken broth.

Add the teriyaki sauce. We always have teriyaki sauce on hand for marinating steaks.

Next, coriander. I had to buy this for the first time. But man! It smells sooo good! I can't wait to use it again.

Lastly, ginger. I don't like ginger. But ground ginger is ok.

Mix that all up and put it to the side.

Go ahead and chop up your green peppers.

And my favorite character...the scallions!

Throw them all on top of the carrots. I used more carrots then called for because I didn't use peas. And I cheated...I bought already shredded carrots.

Get your chicken ready....throw it in the skillet. You'll probably have some left over. I just froze the other 1/2 pd I didn't use. Brown it for about 5 minutes.

Put the browned chicken in the sauce you just made.

Get 1 tsp of the peanut oil and add it to the skillet. Add your eggs and mix 'em around. Then put them to the side in a small bowl.

Put another tsp of the peanut oil in the skillet again. Add your veggies. Let them brown for about 5 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

Then add your rice, until the rice is browned. This part I didn't get. How can you tell that brown rice is browned?

Finally, add the chicken. Heat it all up for about 5 minutes!

It it will smell great!

But your kitchen probably won't look so great.

This was a really involved recipe and you have to move fast! My kitchen was a mess.

Do you see the random scissors in there? How did that happen?!
