Chinese Chicken Fried Rice

I rarely make a really Chinese dish – I grew up around fusion Chinese-Middle Eastern cooking and have taken that to be my usual. After college, I began to incorporate French and Italian (after my study abroad in France, on the border of Italy…) and then I started to like Korean and Thai food….and so, you can predict.

This week, I was dumbfounded to discover that unlike what usually happens when I open up the fridge, the ingredients did not dance off of their shelves and onto the counter willingly. I could not figure out what I wanted to eat, nor what food needed to be eaten, pronto.

So…I went ultra basic. But it was a winner! Yes.

  • brown rice, cooked ahead
  • ground white pepper. liberally.
  • lite soy sauce
  • one small, yellow onion
  • scallion, finely sliced
  • a chicken breast with rib meat, cooked ahead and in pieces
  • sweet yellow corn
  • two beaten eggs
  • a little olive oil
  • a few cherry tomatoes, de-skinned and chopped
