We are eating out less and less, so I am creating my own versions of some of our favorites. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover rice. I usually plan and make a meal earlier in the week using rice and make extra, just for this dish ! Having a cup of pre-cooked, diced meat make this a really fast dish to fix. At the time of posting this recipe I didn't have any, so I pounded one chicken breast thin, seasoned with salt and pepper, added a tsp. of coconut oil to a hot pan and seared it, cooking till done through and through. I then used that same pan to sauté the veggies in, adding oil.

How To Make asian inspired fried rice, millie's

  • 1
    Dice all the veggies and meat of choice. I used chicken for this recipe. ** I didn't have any pre-cooked so I fried a chicken breast I pounded thin (to cook evenly) and seasoned lightly with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    To a hot pan add coconut oil, then veggies. Sauté veggies for 3-5 minutes. (I used the pan I cooked a chicken breast in)
  • 3
    Add in diced meat, water chestnuts, ground ginger, and rice. Mix together then add broth and soy sauce.
  • 4
    Once hot and some of the liquid has been absorbed (2-3 minutes), make a hole or move rice mixture to the side of pan and pour in beaten eggs. Scramble the eggs then stir into the rice mix.
