Chicken Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of those dishes that I've tried to make several times and something was always "off".  I realized that using freshly cooked rice was making my rice gooey and mushy.  It never had the same quality as you'd get in a restaurant, but I decided to try one more time.  It turned out great!  I made the rice a few hours before (because I forgot to make it the day before) and refrigerated it for a while before making the recipe. 

I made this recipe even easier by cooking up the chicken the day before and chopping the veggies before hand.  I had everything ready to go and to be thrown together and it made it a cinch to whip this up and enjoy!
