Recipe: Pseudo-Fried Rice (Ground Chicken and Peppers version)

Pseudo-Fried Rice (Ground Chicken and Sweet Peppers version)Light and easy was on the menu again, making use of left over rice and the ground chicken and some of a bag of mini sweet peppers.  The tumeric and peppers combined to give this a smoky sweet taste.
The Ingredients
cooked rice
1/2 medium onion (chopped)
16 oz. ground chicken
3 garlic cloves (coarsely chopped)
kosher salt
8 mini sweet peppers
ground tumeric
coconut oil
pepper
Prep and Cooking
1. Begin browning the chicken in a skillet, adding the garlic and some salt and pepper and the tumeric
2. Part of the way through the browning, add the onion
3.  Clean, chop, and add the peppers
4. Cook for a couple minutes and add the rice** and then the coconut oil
5. Stir the mixture fairly constantly to get an even temperature without burning
**NOTE:  Since the rice had been in the refrigerator for a few days, I sprinkled a little water on it and nuked it for a minute and a half to soften it before adding to the skillet.
