Chicken and chorizo fried rice

An back from my travels.. Back to rain, hail, sleet and fog.. Ah well .. Only for two weeks as then it’s off galavanting again..

Needed something comforty -4-tea..

I need to hit the store , so it’s another use up dish.. And what better for a fiesta Friday?

So.. We have the garlic chicken .. A stick of chorizo that once you cut the mouldy looking bits off will be fine.. Some celery.. Left over sprouts and carrots .. Some frozen petit pois.. A frozen piece of ginger and a shallot..

And a pack of very good Chinese rice…

Chopped a shallot .. Grated the ginger over the other chopped ingredients..

Set to fry the shallots, celery and chorizo.. Adding the rest when it felt right.

When sizzle sizzle is the bizzle.. Add the rice and whack the heat up..

Mind the potential sticking now!

A splash of stir fry kikoman soy sauce .. A couple of pinches of this and that and a drop of another.

Steaming hot. This makes a great quick warmly comfy dish..

And easy peasey to make.. Try it with whatever you have to hand.. A great use up and store cupboard supper if lunch.. Hmm perhaps with the addition if an egg it could become breakfast..

Possibilities are endless.. Enjoy!
