Chicken Fried Rice

Bored of same old Biriyani? Want to make something with rice and it has to be chicken and quick yet no compromise on taste. Yes! I have a solution it is quick, easy and delicious rice dish with chicken.

This Indochinese recipe is very popular in South Asia and much loved street food in my home country. My vegetarian friends can savour the dish by substituting chicken with tofu or veggies (Beans, carrots, broccoli). This fine range of fried rice is sure to impress the royal table, vary the seasoning to suit your palate.

Fried rice is always served hot, reheating spoils the fun. Serve with tomato sauce and hot chilli sauce, if you have an extra help in kitchen think of Manchurian to go with it.


2 Cups rice
1 cup of chicken breast pieces
2 tbsp oil
2 eggs
1 big onion, cut lengthwise
2 green chillies, slit
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp chili sauce (optional)
Salt to taste


Step 1: Cut chicken into about two inch thin strips. Mix with ½ tsp each chili and pepper powder and pinch of salt and set aside.

Step 2: Pressure cook rice for 2 whistles with a little less water than the cooking instructions on rice packet. (I used about 3.5 cups water: 2cups rice). Once the pressure is released spread rice on a plate and set aside.

Step 3: Heat oil in a wok, add onions, green chillies, ginger garlic paste and saute in high heat. Use long handle ladle. Sauté till aroma vanish. Add chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes or till it changes color.

Step 4: Break eggs into wok, add salt, remaining pepper and chilli powder. Stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add chili sauce, soya sauce and stir.

Step 5: Add rice, and continue high heat stirring for 2-3 minutes. Turn off and garnish with onion greens/chillies


As I always say adjust spices according to your taste.
