Chickety-Chicken Fried Rice

This is some killer chicken fried rice. You will die of eating too much, as I often find myself doing. So, don't do that. Eat a normal portion, if you have the will-power. I dare you. (OK, maybe that was a little over the top, but I didn't have any clever anecdotes for this particular recipe post)

Chicken Fried Rice
What you need:
1 C. diced cooked chicken (This is great made with any leftover cooked chicken or turkey as well. Otherwise, I go the canned route.)
1 T. soy sauce (La Choy is gluten-free)
1 C. uncooked rice
3 T. oil
2 to 2.5 C. chicken broth (for gluten-free, here I'm using Organic Better Than Bouillon)
1/2 C. onion, coarsely chopped
1/4 C. green pepper, finely chopped (sometimes I use more like 1/2 C.)
1/4 C. celery, sliced thinly or finely chopped (sometimes I use more like 1/2 C.)
1/4 C. peas (sometimes I use more like 1/2 C.)
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 C. Chinese (napa) cabbage, shredded

How you make it:

Combine chicken and soy sauce and let stand 15 minutes. Cook rice in hot oil in skillet over medium heat till golden brown; stir frequently. Reduce heat; add chicken with soy sauce and broth. Simmer, covered, 20-25 minutes, or until rice is tender. Remove cover last few minutes. Stir in onion, green pepper, celery and peas. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until liquid is absorbed. Push rice mixture to sides of skillet. Add eggs; cook until almost set; blend into rice. Stir in cabbage; serve at once with soy sauce.


  1. I have not made this in years - I'm putting it on my menu for this week!

  2. question, do you serve this with anything else or do you consider this a one dish meal?

  3. We've eating it as a one-dish sort of meal. I pull out a can or jar of fruit to go with it. Makes it easy.

  4. This was super yummy. I never thought chicken fried rice could be so easy!

  5. It IS easy!!! I'm so glad you liked it, Vanessa!! Hope you're doing well---thanks for commenting!
