4            large eggs, lightly beaten 
3/4         cup diced onion

4           cups cooked basmati rice
1/3        cup soy sauce
 3          tsp. Asian chili-garlic sauce
Toppings:
   **sliced green onions, chopped toasted almonds**

1.        Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 1 minute; add eggs, and cook, gently stirring, 1 to 2 minutes or until softly scrambled. Remove eggs from skillet; chop.
2.       Heat remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in skillet; add onion, bell pepper, and green beans, and stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add chicken, and stir-fry 2 minutes.

  1. I totally love fried rice, even to the point where I'll serve rice and make extra just so the next day I can make fried rice! And I'll put almost anything in it - chicken, shrimp, whatever. It's all good!
