How to Make Chicken and Bacon Fried Rice

  1. Cook the Bacon:
    In a large skillet or wok, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crispy.
    Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the bacon drippings in the skillet.
  2. Cook the Chicken:
    Add the diced chicken to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.
    Cook until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.
    Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Sauté the Veggies:
    In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onion is translucent and fragrant.
    Add the peas and carrots, cooking for another 2-3 minutes until heated through.
  4. Cook the Eggs:
    Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the beaten eggs into the other side.
    Scramble the eggs until fully cooked, then mix them with the vegetables.
  5. Combine and Season:
    Add the cooked rice, chicken, and bacon back into the skillet.
    Pour in the soy sauce and sesame oil, stirring well to combine everything.
    Add the green onions and optional red pepper flakes, cooking for another 2 minutes until everything is heated through and well combined.
