Recipe of the Week: Chicken & Fried Rice

Ingredients for 2

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped

2cm piece fresh ginger – grated

2 chicken breast fillets – cut into 1cm slices

4 spring onions – chopped 2 carrots – cut into 1cm slices

80 grammes frozen peas

100 grammes baby sweetcorn – chopped

1 bag of pre- cooked rice

2 tablespoons of light soy sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil


Melt coconut oil in a wok/ heavy based frying pan over a high heat. Add garlic and ginger, stir fry for 30 seconds. Add chicken, stir fry for 2 minutes, then add the veg and stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes until the chicken and veg are cooked. Ensure chicken is fully cooked – white all the way through if sliced.

Add in the rice, with 2 tablespoons of water, and stir fry till rice is warmed through – about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the soy sauce and sesame oil.

This is a great recipe for using up whatever veg is to your taste/or in the fridge. Leave out the chicken and add more veg for a vegetarian option . Enjoy 🙂
