Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts (diced into bite-sized pieces; pat dry for best results)
  • 2 large onions (peeled and diced)
  • 3 medium carrots (peeled, trimmed and diced)
  • 1 red pepper (cored and diced)
  • 2 cups cooked and chilled rice
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • Sesame seeds and sliced green onion (to serve (optional))

Instructions

  1. Brown the chicken: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken on all sides, until browned.
  2. Sauté the vegetables: Add the onions and carrots and cook until the onions turn translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the pepper and cook until softened.
  3. Cook the rice: Stir in the rice and cook until it’s starting to brown. Stir in the soy sauce and maple syrup.
  4. Cook the egg: Push the fried rice to the side of the pan to make room in the middle. Add the beaten eggs and cook over medium-low heat until just set. Cut into pieces with a spatula and stir into the rice.
  5. Finish the dish: Add the peas, stir everything well and cook until they’re hot.
  6. Serve: Serve immediately sprinkled with sesame seeds and sliced green onion, if you like
