Thoughts on this recipe::

My SIL recently sent me this chicken fried recipe and we finally tried it this week. It’s definitely a keeper and will go on our regular recipe rotation. Hubby requested I leave out the cilantro next time although I didn’t mind it. We had the fried rice minus the lime {someone forgot to buy them at the grocery store, ahem..} but I would like to try it that way next time!
