Janelle from Comfy In the Kitchen is here with a meal I love and a recipe I can’t wait to try!
This is one of my favorite gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free meals and better yet.. my entire family enjoys it too. It was inspired by my sweet friend Mem who is from Thailand. When I found out about my food allergies, Mem brought me over some fried rice and grilled Tilapia that melted in my mouth. When I left the table and came back, I noticed that my son was digging into my fried rice! What?! There were veggies in there and he was voluntarily eating them? Yayyy! I have watched Mem cook before and thought I would give this fried rice a try! Here is my take on the dish ”Chicken Fried Rice” …notice that I process the chicken for quick marination. Love it!
- 4-6 Chicken Breasts
- 1 cup Soy Sauce
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic (minced)
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 2 cups water (for cooking carrots and peas)
- 2 carrots (chopped)
- 2 cups frozen peas
- Prepared Jasmine rice (per package directions for 6 servings)
- Soy Sauce for seasoning/stir frying
- 4 Tbsp Wok Oil (I recommend Joyce Chen garlic and ginger)
- Place chicken 2 breasts at a time in food processor and process. (Do not over process)
- When all chicken is processed place in a casserole dish
- Make marinade: soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, brown sugar and sesame seeds and pour over chicken.
- While chicken is marinating make rice according to package directions.
- In another saucepan add the 2 cups of water, peas and carrots and let boil for appx 5 mins.
- Add 2 Tbsp wok oil and heat wok on high heat.
- Add chicken and turn down heat slightly- stir fry with a plastic spatula until done.
- Empty chicken into a clean bowl.
- Add 2 more Tbsp of wok oil to wok and heat on high again. Add cooked rice, veggies, and soy sauce to your liking- stir fry. Pat the rice down, then fluff up and repeat until done.
- Add chicken and serve.
