    This fried rice recipe uses leftover brown rice. Feel free to use cooked white rice, but make sure it's cold before making this dish. With rice, chicken, peas, peppers and onions, it's a good square meal.

    A quick and easy dish! Can also be made with pasta - both are really tasty. This is a great way to use up leftover rice if you don't have the quick pre-steamed wok rice to hand, and you can adjust the seasonings to taste - add additional veg, if desired.

    This is something my sister just sort of rustled up with leftover chicken and whatever else we had in the fridge. It's very versatile and tastes just like chicken fried rice that you would order in.

    Lots of crispy pieces of bacon and plenty of spring onions make this an enjoyable dish! It doesn't take long to prepare, especially if you are opt to use leftover chicken to begin with.
