This delicious Chicken Fried Rice recipe is not only incredibly flavorful but also fits perfectly into a healthy lifestyle. It is a great choice for those following the Slimming World or Weight Watchers program, as it is gluten-free and dairy-free.

Cooking the Rice and Preparing the Ingredients

To start, cook the rice according to the package instructions, and while it’s cooking, prepare the other ingredients. You’ll need boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh, which is cooked to perfection in a frying pan with a sprinkle of black pepper. The chicken is then coated with a tablespoon of soy sauce, giving it a savory and slightly tangy flavor. Once golden and coated, set the chicken aside for later.

Sautéing Aromatics and Veggies

In the same pan, you’ll sauté a combination of diced onion, crushed garlic, and freshly grated ginger until they become fragrant and tender. Next, add diced carrot, chopped mushrooms, peas, and red bell pepper, cooking them for a few minutes until they are slightly softened.

Combining Chicken, Veggies, and Rice

Now it’s time to reintroduce the chicken back into the pan along with the cooked rice. Using the back of a wooden spoon, gently break up any clumps of rice and ensure that all the ingredients are evenly mixed. To enhance the flavors, add a teaspoon of sesame oil and another tablespoon of soy sauce, stirring everything together until it is well-coated.

Enhancing the Flavors

Create a small hole in the middle of the mixture and spray it with a little cooking oil. Pour in the beaten eggs and stir gently as they begin to cook. Gradually incorporate the eggs into the rice, creating a delightful blend of textures.

Finishing Touch

Finally, add the finishing touch by sprinkling chopped spring onions over the dish. Season with salt and black pepper according to your taste preference. Now, you can sit down and enjoy this wholesome and satisfying meal that is as healthy as it is delicious.
