Chicken Fried Rice


Need an easy mid-week meal?

Chicken Fried Rice is a family favourite in our household. It is also a great recipe for using-up left-over roast chicken. I like to sneak in some extra veg too without the kids knowing!


The great thing about Chicken Fried Rice is that you can put almost anything you like in it. As long as you have the base ingredients of chicken, rice, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.

Just go for it - open the fridge and add away! I like to put an chopped up omelette in mine too.
