Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice

Looking for a quick, easy and delicious week night dinner ? Chicken Fried Rice is perfect and if you already have leftover Rice on hand, this dish will be done in minutes.

I absolutely love cooking with Sesame Oil, love the smell, love the taste, love everything about it, except the price of a bottle. But since all recipes only require a small amount of the Sesame Oil, I suppose it is worth the price in the end.

I use my electric wok for all my stir-fries, but you can use a very large skillet as well. From start to finish all the ingredients are cooked in the wok, therefore this is really a one-pot {or wok in this case!}recipe, which is always welcome, less dishes !

Depending on your preference, you can add more Eggs if you wish. If I only have small Eggs, I would use 3 or even 4, but 2 extra-large Eggs are fine and will not be overbearing in this recipe.

Chicken Fried Rice

4 Servings


2 TB Sesame Oil, divided
2 Extra-Large Eggs, lightly beaten
500g Chicken Fillets, cubed
2 t Fresh Garlic, crushed
1/4 t Salt
1/4 t Black Pepper
4 cups Cooked Rice, cold   {I like Tastic Basmati}
1 cup Frozen Peas, defrosted
1 cup Frozen Carrots, small cubes, defrosted
3 TB Spring Onions, chopped
3 TB Thick Soy Sauce


1.) Heat 1 TB Oil in a large wok or skillet - add the Eggs and scramble until fluffy - remove from wok/pan and set aside.
2.) Add remaining Oil - stir in Chicken, Garlic, Salt and Pepper - cook until Chicken is done {about 5 minutes}
3.) Add the cooked Rice to the Chicken and stir-fry 2 - 3 minutes.
4.) Return the cooked Eggs to the wok/pan together with the Peas, Carrots, Spring Onions and Soy Sauce - stir-fry 5 minutes or until heated through.

Serve with a salad.
