chicken fried rice
June 8, 2010
i needed to make something yummy and nourishing w/the food that i had on hand, and this was a hit! it was a complete meal; we each had a bowl for dinner and were completely satisfied. what a quick, easy summer dinner!
(while eating, hubby said that this needs to be on the “bowls” menu, so we put it on the list!)
CHICKEN FRIED RICE:
:: i chopped carrots, celery and purple (red?) cabbage (what we had in our fridge) in small pieces and sauteed in about 1/3 c coconut oil + a few tsp of sesame oil.
:: i added some garlic salt, sea salt, and onion powder to the simmering veggies.
:: when the veggies were more “soft” than crunchy, i pushed aside some room in the pan and fried 2 pastured eggs (adding some more seasoning).
:: when eggs were fried and scrambled up, i added cooked short grain brown rice (which i had put in the rice cooker earlier in the day).
:: i poured in some braggs liquid aminos (aka, soy sauce) and a few more tsps of sesame oil. i stirred to ensure all the rice/veggies were covered in the liquid.
:: separately, i had earlier boiled some frozen boneless chicken tenders. when they were cooked and cooled, i chopped them up. in a small pot on the stove, i warmed up some agave + liquid aminos (soy sauce) + powdered ginger + a scooch of corn starch … stirred til somewhat thick, then added the chopped chicken. this gave the chicken a yummy flavor!
:: i added the flavored chicken to the rice mix, stirred it all, added some more salt to taste, and voila: dinner!!
