I love fried rice, but I'd have to sub in chicken.

I, the one who grew up within walking distance of the ocean, do not eat seafood. No. Really.

I live in Mass, vacationed in Maine, and the first time I told not-yet-Hubby that I didn't like lobster, you would have thought I slapped him with one.

As I don't care for shrimp... this should work using chicken instead, you think?
