Chicken Fried Rice is a dish that you probably would like to try making for your family.
I know how hard it is to come up with recipes. Especially ones that are delicious, but at the same time easy to make. So I came up with the idea of a simple recipe that all kinds of moms will love. You’ll only be needing one pan to cook all the ingredients. Doesn’t it sound super easy?
Of course, I also included a lot of healthy ingredients. This way, it will be easier to feed your kids some of their veggies. You may also add other ingredients like corn to make it more appealing to the children.
I used vegetable oil as cooking oil for this recipe. But you may use any cooking oil available at home. Or use healthy alternatives like virgin olive oil.
We’ll be needing onion and garlic. They are necessary for cooking any kind of fried rice.
The yummy chicken breast fillet is gonna be the meat and source of protein. Normally, other recipes use ground pork or beef, spam, and the like. But this time, we’ll be using chicken.
Some broccoli florets and carrots for additional health impact and flavor. Fried rice is more enjoyable with veggies.
You can make your cooked rice at the same time. But it is wiser to use leftover rice from the other day.
Eggs will give our fried rice an oriental feel. Plus, they taste the best when added to such a dish.
We’ll be adding soy sauce, fish sauce, tamarind paste, salt, and pepper to enhance the flavor and make it tastier.
Then spring onion as a garnish and additional flavor.
