Using the same wok/pan, thaw frozen vegetables.  Here I used a basic mix of carrots, corn, peas, and green beans.  Takes about 2 minutes.  Drain any excess liquid.

Add chicken.  I used 2 breasts of a deli roast chicken from the store.  Cubed to bite sized pieces.  If using bacon or shrimp, cook separately & thoroughly before this step.  Combine and heat through.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil, add rice. Use back of spatula to break up any clumps. It's ok to have a little browning but stir to avoid burning. This releases the rice's nutty aroma. Cook until soft & fluffy.
