It’s 2 am on Monday night and you’ve been staring at the same page of your 100 level accounting book for the last 3 hours. You’ve checked Facebook at least 12 times and now have taken every “Friends” Buzzfeed quiz known to man. Exam season has finally dawned upon us. After a long summer and 3 weeks of constant drinking, there’s no way you can focus long enough to comprehend the difference between accounts receivable and deliverable.

Well since you’ve been “studying” so hard for the last 6 hours, you deserve a food break. Considering you’ve ordered dp dough 4 nights in a row, it might be time for a change. Plus you heard that there’s a stick of butter in every calzone. Whatever, spring break isn’t for awhile anyway.

What about fried rice? You’re still a little bit put off by this because of your last experience with fried rice. You had it sober from the drunk chinese spot and swore never again. Well turns out you have some left over rice, chicken, a stolen egg from your roommate, and plenty of random vegetables that are about to go bad. Might as well throw them all in a pan and cover it with some soy sauce. Grab the bottle of sriracha and pour it in to help give a little kick to keep you studying. It’s going to be a long night.

So much for turning over a new leaf and studying early like you said you were going to do at the start of the year. Hey, you obviously do your best studying under pressure right?

1. In a wok, heat the oil to a high heat.

2. Add the chicken and garlic. Cook until the outside of the chicken is browned. It does not need to be fully cooked since it will continually be cooked throughout the whole process.

3. Move the chicken and egg over. Crack an egg and fry. When it starts becoming cooked, cut up and mix with chicken.

4. Add vegetables, cook for 3-5 minutes until soft

5. Add the soy sauce, oyster and sriracha. Let cook for one minute.

6. Add in the rice and cook in the wok for 1 more minutes and fold over so the rice picks up all of the sauce.
