Chinese Fried Rice

I am not going to lie when I decided to make fried rice I might have scoured the internet to find the easiest fried rice recipe possible.  I think I succeeded!  This was so simple to make and was honestly pretty good. 

1 - 2 green onions, as desired
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
4 tablespoons oil for stir-frying, or as needed
4 cups cold cooked rice
1 cup frozen peas (I used 1/2 a cup and added carrots for the other 1/2)
1 - 2 tablespoons light soy sauce, as desired
Wash and finely chop the green onion.
Lightly beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.
Heat a wok or frying pan and add 2 tablespoons oil.
When the oil is hot, add the peas and stir fry until tender.
Next, add the eggs.
Cook, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry.
Remove the egg mixture and clean out the pan.
Add 2 tablespoons oil.
Add the rice.
Stir-fry for a few minutes, using chopsticks or a wooden spoon to break it apart.
Stir in the soy sauce as desired.
When the rice is heated through, add the scrambled egg back into the pan.
Mix thoroughly.
Stir in the green onion.
Serve hot.
