Looking for a quick, easy and delicious week night dinner ? Chicken Fried Rice is perfect and if you already have leftover Rice on hand, this dish will be done in minutes.

I absolutely love cooking with Sesame Oil, love the smell, love the taste, love everything about it, except the price of a bottle.

But since all recipes only require a small amount of the Sesame Oil, I suppose it is worth the price in the end.

I use my electric wok for all my stir-fries. However, you can use a very large skillet as well. From start to finish all the ingredients are cooked in the wok.

Therefore this is really a one-pot (or wok in this case!) recipe, which is always welcome, less dishes !

Depending on your preference, you can add more Eggs if you wish. If I only have small Eggs, I would use 3 or even 4, but 2 extra-large Eggs are fine and will not be overbearing in this recipe.
