Didn't have any chicken, spring onions or peppers so substituted mushrooms, onions and wine vinegar for rice vinegar. Added a touch of sesame oil on the brown rice to finish. Dinner rated 10/10 by my housemate so now added to favourites. Thank you.-23 Nov 2011

Easy Chicken Fried Rice

Easy Chicken Fried Rice is a cinch to make at home with a few kitchen staples. This simple, 20 minute dish tastes just like take out!

On nights when I don’t feel like making dinner, but want to save picking up take out for the end of the week or weekend, I make Easy Chicken Fried Rice. This customizable dish is SO quick, SO easy and, although I’m showing you how to make chicken fried rice, I usually use whatever we’ve got on hand in the fridge or freezer.

We blaze through a wok of it incredibly fast – it’s delicious, cheap, and did I mention quick? It takes longer for it to cool down to a temperature that Cameron doesn’t consider “spicy” than it does to actually cook!


2 cups or 400 g Leftover Thai Fragrant Jasmine Rice
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 spring onion/scallions chopped
5 - 6 Cloves Minced Garlic
1 cup or 200 g frozen peas
1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil

The sauce

1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Stir the above ingredients together in a bowl.
1 Tablespoon Chinese rice wine (keep separate from rest of ingredients)

The sauce combination I use is not salty, but if you wish for a saltier flavor you can add an extra dash of soy sauce when you have served the dish. It's always a personal preference as to how much soy sauce you add to a recipe, but I don't like salty food, so I always add less and then people can help themselves later if they wish.

Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Easy Chicken Fried Rice – This Chicken Fried Rice is so much better than takeout, and you won’t believe how easy AND quick it is to make!

Talk about a one-pan, wam-bam thank-you-ma’am recipe!

Hi, friends! How are you? What are you up to?! Wanna know what I’m up to? OH-kay! ⬅ said in Monica’s voice. (Monica Gellar!!)

So. Today, I’m traveling to Myrtle Beach, where it’s 30 degrees warmer than here, and where I will be sharing a few days away from work with several of my colleagues. We will be eating, drinking, talking, eating again, and so on… all I can say is, YAY MEEEE!

BUT! More importantly, we’re here for the food and not for my bragging. Back to bizness.

One of my goals in life is to serve my family – AND YOURS – all the takeout copycats that I can make.

Thing is, I love a ready-to-go meal just as much as the next person, but I honestly love my home cooked dinners way, way, waaaay more. I can’t help it. I think it’s because home cooked food equals comfort food which equals winter and all the cold and snow that comes with it. Thank goodness we are in the homestretch because, Spring is so close, I can almost feel it!

This chicken fried rice is soooo a Wednesday recipe. Like, hey Wednesday, I got this! No drive-thrus tonight, aight. BECAUSE! this is simple and versatile and loaded with flavor.

Lately, we have been HOOKED on pineapples. I’m talking at least once a week. Every kind of recipe you can imagine, whatever good stuff I can get my hands on, I throw pineapples on it.

Thus, our fried rice didn’t stand a chance without a few chunks of ’em.

Working off my Shrimp Fried Rice recipe, sometimes I find that I gotta mix it up and share these little simple things with you. We have rice, some chicken, lots of veggies, more rice… and it all happens in one pan.

All you have to do here is throw some stuff in a skillet and eat it. I don’t even bother putting it on a plate. I just stand above the stove and “taste-test” for, like, forever! It’s THAT good. Trust me. Make it and you’ll see.

The Best Chicken and Rice

A quick broil at the end creates the perfect crispy skin and gives a little crunch to the rice and vegetables.

Carbonara Fried Rice

The rich flavor of a carbonara combined with the crispy, crunchy texture of fried rice. Need we say more?

Risotto Stuffed Peppers and Zucchini

The risotto is delicious stuffed in either peppers or squash so keep that in mind if one looks better than the other at the market. Also, the zucchini can be mixed with small firm yellow squash rather than red peppers.

Sheet Pan Fried Rice

Baking the rice on a sheet pan guarantees more of the crispy, crunchy bits that make fried rice the perfect food. For this recipe, the older and drier the rice the better. If you must start with freshly cooked grains, spread them out on a sheet pan to dry out in the refrigerator first.

Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Soup

Brown rice is the perfect addition to this slow-cooker chicken soup. The wholesome, whole grain adds heft, without altering the nostalgic flavor the classic.

Risotto with Parmesan and Lemon

The secret to ultra-creamy risotto is simple: add the cooking liquid slowly, about a cup at a time. This helps release the starch from the rice, creating just the right texture.

Cancel the takeout order. Chicken, veggies and cooked rice coated in a teriyaki sauce make a tasty and hearty dinner that gets to the table fast.

I have made this dish several times and my husband and kids love it. I have changed the chicken for shrimp or a combination of both. I’ve changed the peas for broccoli since my 3 year old loves it. The dish itself and the flavor is great and so easy to make. Thank you

Thank you, Julia! These are great tips. I love that you’ve tried different combos we’ll definitely have to try this with shrimp.

cooked rice, white or brown

handfuls bok choy, stems and leaves sliced thinly

spring onions, sliced into thin rounds

Optional extras: 1/2-inch freshly grated ginger, 2-3 cloves minced garlic, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, splash of sesame oil


Place a skillet over medium heat and add a teaspoon of oil or butter. Scramble the eggs, breaking them into small curds. When the eggs are just barely cooked, scrape them into a clean dish and set them aside.

Increase heat to medium-high and add another teaspoon of oil to the pan. Sear the tofu on all sides, stirring only occasionally and cooking until the tofu is golden-brown on all sides. Remove the tofu from the heat and set it aside in a clean dish.

Add another teaspoon of oil to the pan and stir in the rice. Make sure all the grains of rice are coated with a little oil, then spread the rice into a thin layer across the bottom of the pan. Let it cook for a few minutes, then gather it together and spread it out thin again. Continue until the rice is toasted and beginning to brown.

Add two tablespoons of soy sauce and one tablespoon of rice wine vinegar (and ginger and garlic, if using), and stir. Add the bok choy and cook until the green parts of the leaves are wilted. Add the peas and carrots, cooking until they are warmed through. Stir in the eggs, tofu, and spring onions.

Taste and add more soy sauce and rice wine vinegar if needed. Hot sauce and sesame oil can be added here, or sprinkled in each individual bowl instead.
