This delicious chicken fried rice is like having authentic chicken fried rice but without all the extra grease and calories. A healthy take on it, so easy to make also has the most amazing flavour layers.

Ever since I can remember when I get Chinese food I always make sure to order the chicken fried rice on the menu. I absolutely LOVE it. This is a staple in our house, we for sure have it once a week, busy lives means easier dinners but keeping them healthy.

This recipe is easy enough to sub out chicken for shrimp, tofu etc. or add in for extra protein! You can also swap the rice for cauliflower if you are wanting a lower carb meal. Lastly if you want to add in more veggies feel free to do so!

Also a little pro tip for you.. in a hurry or exhausted from a long day of work. Buy a cooked whole chicken from the grocery store. They are nearly the same price as raw chicken breasts/thighs and taste just as good. I do this about 50% of the time just depends on what my days are like. SAVES EVEN MORE TIME!!!

• Turn the heat up to medium-high and add cooked rice. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until rice is nice and hot and starts to brown. Add in cut up chicken pieces. Reduce heat and push rice, veggies, chicken to the sides of the pan, making a hole for the eggs.
