1/2 cup red bell pepper and 1/2 cup green bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup mushrooms cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 eggs lightly beaten
3 cups cooked white rice long grain works best
3 tablespoons soy sauce low sodium is fine
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup green onions sliced




Step 1:   Cut all vegetables.   Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large pan over medium high heat.  Add all the vegetables and garlic to the pan.   Stir fry for 1 minute and add the chicken pieces.   Cook for 4-5 minutes or until veggies are softened and chicken turned white.   Remove  from the pan and set aside.
Step 2:    Pour the remaining teaspoon of oil into the pan. Add the rice then add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up with a spatula, until the eggs are scrambled and cooked through. Season the rice and eggs with salt and pepper. Add chicken with veggies  to the pan. Stir in the soy sauce and sesame oil and mix gently until everything is thoroughly combined and warmed through, 3-4 minutes.

Sprinkle green onions over the top of the rice mixture, then serve.
