Method:

Stir-Fry

Ingredients

1 tablespoon sunflower oil
4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons garlic butter, plus more to taste
3 eggs
1 cup onions, diced
1/4 cup carrots, diced
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
2 cups cooked white rice, fried rice tastes best when made from leftover, day-old steamed rice (rather than freshly cooked)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add the safflower oil to a skillet and set over medium heat. Meanwhile, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken (stirring occasionally) until lightly-browned, firm, and opaque throughout. Add the garlic butter and stir to coat the chicken. Set aside.
2
Using the same pan, cook the onions, carrots and green onions until softened. Set aside.
3
Wipe out the pan, then scramble the eggs (season the raw egg with salt and pepper to taste). Add the rice, soy sauce, sesame seeds, chicken, onions, carrots and green onion to the pan and cook until the rice is warm and browned. Serve hot.
