Easy Lemon Chicken with Egg Fried Rice

This Easy Lemon Chicken with Egg Fried rice is a firm family favourite here! I make it very often. Please have a go – see what you think?

It’s so much nicer than from the takeaway and it’s not too bad for you either! In fact it’s a fakeaway!

Have a go and see how you get on, oh and please please drop me a comment below the recipe. I love to get your comments

Thanks Clare
