This week is evening VBS at my church and I'm helping in the 3rd grade class. This means we have to have dinner before we leave. I've tried my hardest for us to have dinner before we leave rather than shovel in something from the drive-thru on the way home. The dinner has to be super easy too. That just makes summer all the better with the simplest of recipes. Plus!! A chocolate pudding pie ready to cut into after coming home was realllllly a good idea.
Chicken Fried Rice
2 cups cooked rice
3 chicken breasts, cook and shredded
1/2 onion, diced
1 heaping T of minced garlic
3/4 cups frosen peas (I omit the carrots but if you like them, add them!)
3 T sesame oil
1/4 + cup soy sauce
Prepare rice as directed.
Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and peas. (and carrots, if you must) Cook for 5-7 minutes.
Crack eggs into pan and scramble, mixing with vegetables.
Add rice, chicken, and soy sauce to skillet mixture. Stir to combine and remove from heat. Serve and devour!

Chocolate Pudding Pie ... yeah, I think you can figure this one out. Chill in frig for at least 2 hours so it's not goopy when cut.
