30 Minute Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Fried Rice

30 Minute Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Fried Rice

For week two of our 30 Minute Meals series we are sharing another one of my favorite meals. This tasty all in one dish can be made in under 15 minutes with a little prep the day before. I like to grill up several chicken breasts at the beginning of the week to keep on hand when needed. Also the brown rice can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator until ready to use. Enjoy! If you missed last weeks post it can be found here: Smoky Bacon Chili

Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice


3 cups prepared brown rice

1/2 lb organic chicken breast, cooked

1 cup carrots, chopped

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup spinach (optional, could add green beans or broccoli)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 eggs (optional)

3 Tbsp sesame oil

1/4 cup organic soy sauce (important as soy is a GMO item unless organic)


Prepare rice according to directions. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add carrots, peas, spinach and garlic. Stir fry until tender. If using egg crack into skillet and mix with vegetables. Add prepared rice and chicken. Add soy sauce (I prefer Tamari Lite Soy Sauce) and remove from heat. Serve warm.
