Easy Fried Rice

EASY MEAL FOR ONE! That leftover serving makes for great lunches. DOUBLE IT if you want to make for two! Vegetables in this recipe can be versatile. We'll mix and match two vegetables at a time depending no what we have. You can use carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, onions, snap peas, frozen peas, corn, lima beans, and much more. For a vegetarian version, just avoid the chicken and add another vegetable!

  • 1 cup Cooked rice (white or brown)
  • 1/2 pound Chicken diced
  • 1 cup Bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 Onion, white or yellow sliced
  • 1 cup Broccoli diced into florets
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Srircaha optional if you want a spicy kick!
  • Olive oil


  • Take time to prep the vegetables, dice the chicken, and cook the rice (we'll use Minute Rice to make it a faster process). This is a great Meal Prep Sunday activity!
  • In a large wok or skillet, add a teaspoon of olive oil and the diced chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and cook until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside.
  • Add your vegetable medley and sprinkle on the ground ginger. Cook up the vegetables with the chicken until the chicken is completely cooked through (it will get a tad bit brown and crispy on the outside, which means it's perfect and juicy on the inside!)
  • Add rice, soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce to the wok. Mix together until everything starts bubbling together nicely.
  • Make a small space on the side or middle of your skillet to crack the eggs. Scramble them up until mostly cooked through. Mix in with the rest of the stir-fry.
  • Keep cooking until the stir-fry has a crispy, fried rice with that sauce. This is also a great time to add Sriracha if you want it spicy!


Remember, these vegetables can be ANYTHING you want!  Choose two vegetables you love, or better yet, use two vegetables that are already sitting in your refrigerator from previous meals.
This is a GREAT recipe to make when you have a container of leftover white rice from Chinese takeout! We do that CONSTANTLY.
