Japanese Fried Rice

Japanese fried rice is one of my favourite side dishes. You can also eat it as your main meal. My daughter loves to make this recipe and its so easy that you can too. It is perfect when you have left over rice and/or chicken from the night before as it saves steps. Get help chopping vegetables and using the stove if needed.
