So we all know no how I feel about turkey. (In case you missed it.) Because of this, leftovers need to be carefully prepared…and full of powerful flavors, as to hide the turkey tastes. That’s what I love about this turkey fried rice recipe…the bold flavors from the orange sauce really take the edge off the turkey and make it seem much more “chicken fried rice”-like.
If you have the cooked meat (which you would if using leftover turkey!) and some cooked rice, then this literally takes 8 minutes to make. If you don’t have rice prepared, it will take 13 minutes if you have minute rice, or 28 minutes if you have white rice, or 58 minutes if you have brown rice.
Regardless of what rice you are using, it’s quick and simple.
Fry the egg.
Fry the veggies with the meat and sauce.
Add in the rice and egg.
Bon Appe-Leftovers friends!
