Don’t throw away your leftovers — you can turn them into a whole new meal. Take your three-day old rice out of the fridge and make fried rice. If you have leftover chicken, fish, or shrimp, cut it into bite-sized pieces and throw the pieces in the sauté pan as well.
Fried rice makes a hearty and delicious weeknight meal. While some fried rice recipes call for fresh rice you can cut a few corners with these recipes.
