Want to simplify this even more?? Take your leftover rice, heat it up as usual, but feel free to replace the vegetables with frozen vegetable medley (carrots, onions, peas, etc.). You can also substitute out the need to cook chicken with something like diced lunch meat (ham or turkey). Any more simplified than this and now you’re just being lazy.
Hon Dashi powder is a Japanese seasoning made from smoked and dried bonito (aka Skipjack Tuna). This is my secret ingredient that I learned to use from a family friend when I was a kid. You can use the hondashi to enhance the flavor of the fried rice–and no, when added to this recipe it will not give a fishy taste. (Trust me: I don’t like fish.)
