My daughter's favorite dinner to make is a Chicken Fried Rice recipe that she learned in school. What a treat! First of all, I get a night off from cooking dinner - Woohoooooo! ...and secondly... it is DELICIOUS!! It's got quite a few steps but well worth the work. There usually isn't any left but if I manage to put some away in a container it reheats well the next day in the microwave.
You'll have to give it a try and I'd love to know how your family liked it!!
