Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice

This easy to prepare Chicken fried Rice is a great way to hide extra vegetables in for those fussy easters at home! You can use any meat/ fish/ prawns/ tofu as an alternative for chicken. With minimal ingredients, this will be one of your favourite go-to recipes when you are short for time. I used basmati rice in this recipe but feel free to use cauliflower or broccoli rice. 

Ingredients (serves 4-5) 

  • 1 1/2 cups basmati rice 
  • 3 cups water 
  • 1 1/2 cup peas 
  • 1 onion, chopped finely 
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped 
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger 
  • 500gms chicken, chopped into small chunks 
  • 1 capsicum, chopped finely 
  • 1 cup mushrooms 
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped 
  • 1 courgette, chopped finely 
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce 
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil 
  • 4 eggs 

Method 

  1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker with the water.
  2. Heat the sesame oil in a fry pan over medium heat and add the ginger, garlic and onions. Stir to combine for a couple of minutes. Add the chicken and cook until brown. 
  3. Add in the vegetables (capsicum, courgette, mushrooms, broccoli) and mix to combine. Add in the rice, peas and sauces (feel free to add more sauce if you like). Mix together for another 5 minutes or so. 
  4. Turn the heat down to low and crack the eggs in the rice mixture. Mix until the eggs are cooked through. Season to taste. 
  5. Serve in a bowl or on a plate with a side of greens and garnish with some coriander (optional).
