BBQ Fried Rice

Clean eating shouldn't be hard or break the bank. Often more inexpensive cuts and sales can be utilized in order to make quick and budget friendly meals. In this case I have used leftover barbecued chicken and a small bag of frozen vegetables.

BBQ chicken fried rice

2 tbsp. oil (olive, coconut, whatever you prefer to use)
2 c. leftover brown rice
3 leftover pieces of grilled BBQ chicken off bone and chopped up (I used thighs)
1 sm. bag frozen vegetables
1 tbsp. minced garlic
onion powder to taste
1 egg beaten
low sodium soy sauce

In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat add the oil. Once the oil is hot add the rice, chicken, veggies, garlic, and onion powder. Heat through. Add the beaten egg over the top and stir into the rice to cook through. Stir in soy sauce to taste. Serve hot.

As a side I added cucumber sliced I'd added a little vinegar to.

For those using the 21 Day Fix containers this meal uses about 1 yellow, 1 1/2 green (cucumber was 1 green total), 1 spoon per serving (counting the fat from the chicken as I used darker meat)
