Easy Gluten Free Chicken Fried Rice

Happy hump day!! I wanted to share this super easy, gluten free chicken fried rice that I made last week. Everyone loved it, and it took no time to prepare or cook...and for me, that is a major win!  



Chicken Fried Rice
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: About 3 servings
Ingredients
  • 3 cups cooked long-grain brown rice (preferably left over rice. White is fine too)
  • 3/4 lb bonelss skinless chicken breasts, diced into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 1 1/3 cups frozen peas and carrots blend
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Sriracha, for serving (optional)
Directions
  • In a large non-stick wok or skillet, heat 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil and 1 1/2 tsp of the canola oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add chicken pieces, season lightly with salt and pepper and saute until cooked through, about 5 - 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Return skillet to medium-high heat, add remaining 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil and 1 1/2 tsp canola oil. Add peas and carrots blend and green onions and saute 1 minute, then add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Push veggies to edges of pan, add eggs in center and cook and scramble.
  • Return chicken to skillet along with rice. Add in soy sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with Sriracha to taste if desired.

  2. I cooked this last night thanks to reading your post and it was fabulous! I used fresh green onion stalks and it was the best part of the recipe instead of diced white onions. Thanks for sharing!
