Chicken Fried Rice - With A Little Heat
Updated: Jan 2
Rice is a versatile food. It can be used as a side dish on its’ own, or add veggies, your favorite meat, seasonings, and bam – you have a meal.
I use gluten free rice as I am intolerant to gluten. Honestly the family can’t tell the difference. Feel free to substitute this recipe with your favorite rice. Typically this dish is made with white rice. You can add or substitute available veggies from your refrigerator. It will be awesome!
Quick tip: I like to cook the chicken separately with garlic to infuse the chicken with a garlicky flavour. Also, if necessary, add a little water when stir frying to help avoid burning or drying out. Ease in the soy sauce and sesame oil to your liking.
