2 tablespoons canola, vegetable or avocado oil – divided
3 eggs, beaten
1 pound chicken breast, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
5 cups cooked, cooled white or brown rice
3–4 tablespoons soy sauce to taste

1 1/2 cups peas and carrots
Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the eggs and scramble, then remove from the pan to a plate.
Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and garlic powder, then add the other tablespoon of oil oil to the wok. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes until cooked through. Let the chicken sit for a minute in the wok before you start stirring it around so that it sears on the outside.

Stir to combine and heat the ingredients, taste for seasonings and serve.
Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
