Fried rice is a takeaway must-have, and a favourite amongst my whole family. That’s why I thought I’d show you guys my fakeaway recipe! It’s so easy to make, it just takes a little bit of time and patience. There is something just so satisfying about having a nice big bowl of rice and sharing it with your family. Feel absolutely free to change around your veggies, meats and even add other herbs and spices if you want; this is just how I like mine but everyone is different!
Ingredients (serves 2):
200g chopped chicken
2 cups cooked rice (day old rice gives a better texture, but freshly cooked rice is fine too!)
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp Brown sugar or honey
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup peas
1/4 spring onion
3 tbsp light soy sauce
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
Pinch of salt and pepper
Sesame seeds for presentation
1. Chop up the chicken and add to a freezer bag. Pour in 1 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp brown sugar or honey. Leave to marinade in the fridge for at least half an hour.
2. Cook your rice if you are using fresh rice. Put some sesame oil in a wok and scramble your eggs. Put the eggs into a separate bowl when cooked for later.
3. Cook your chicken with sesame oil in the wok until it starts to brown, and add your chopped onions. Cook until the chicken is cooked and the onions are soft, and transfer to a bowl for later.
4. Now you want to fry your rice. Put the temperature on the hob high and heat up some sesame oil in a wok. Add your rice, and the remaining soy sauces and mince.
5. Cook the rice until hot, and then add your other ingredients including your chopped spring onions. Cook these all until hot and then serve and enjoy!
