Do you have leftover cooked rice around? If so, perfect! Time to make some authentic Chinese Chicken Fried Rice! This recipe is easy and super tasty – chicken, peas, carrots, onions, eggs, ham, and green onions – what is not to love? Better than take out and much healthier too! There’s also a gluten free option!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (separated in 2 tbsp)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh or breast, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas and diced carrots blend
  • 2 green onions, sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced – you can also use 3 tsp of minced garlic bottled
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cooked rice – the best is using cold, leftover cooked rice
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce – If you’re on a gluten free diet, substitute the soy sauce with coconut amino or gluten free soy sauce
  • 3 slices of ham, cut in to 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Salt, as desired

Instructions

In a large non-stick skillet, add 2 tbsp of olive oil (leave 2 tbsp) and cook chicken over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Make sure to stir the chicken, stirring occasionally.

Remove the chicken from the skillet but leave the chicken juice and oil mix in the skillet.

Add garlic, peas, carrots, 1 tbsp of green onions (leave the rest for later), onions, and ham in to the chicken juice/oil mix and cook for about 2 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften, stirring occasionally.

With the spatula, move vegetables to one side of the skillet, add the beaten eggs to the other side, and stir it to let it scramble.

Add the chicken, rice, soy sauce, 2 tbsp of olive oil, sesame oil, and salt as desired, and stir fry everything to blend together. Cook for about 3 minutes. At the end, sprinkle the rest of the green onions on top.
