Hello and welcome to another tasty version of your classic chinese takeaway, but without the calories of the real deal.
On slimming world extra easy, this recipe is free so no syns used.
Here is what you will need
- 1 chicken breast chopped into small chunks
- frylight for your pans
- leftover white rice that has been cooked. I find this works best with fried rice as freshly cooked rice can be far to wet. However if you do use previously cooked rice it must be kept cold until used and then heated up to very hot before you eat to kill bacteria.
- 1 cup of frozen peas
- 1 cup of frozen sweetcorn
- chopped mushrooms
- chopped green onions
- dark soy sauce
- 3 eggs whisked
To start you want to heat your pan and spray with frylight to prevent sticking. Then add your whisked eggs and scramble until just cooked. Try not to overcook as it can make then rubbery.
Put your scrambled eggs into a bowl and put to one side. Now you need to get your diced chicken, add a teaspoon of soy sauce to the bowl and stir through. Now wipe you pan and respray with frylight, cook your chicken until its cooked through, then remove and put to one side.
Now its time to cook all the veggies. I used mushrooms, sweetcorn, peas and green onions but you can put what ever you would like to into the fried rice.
Dont put all your green onions into the pan, you want to hold some back for the final mix.
Also add a splash of soy sauce to the veg to give them flavour.
Keep frying until you are happy that everything is cooked , and then set to one side.
Wipe your pan AGAIN, now spray with frylight and get that pan hot. When its heated up whack in the cooked rice, and keep moving about the pan until its heated throughley.
When your happy its hot, add a good splash of the dark soy sauce and quickly stir it through. This gives it the lovely golden colour without the oil.
Once its all mixed about its time to start adding all the ingredients back into the pan and give it a good stir through, cook for a few more minutes.
I love my soy sauce and even though you can use regular or light soy, I find the dark soy adds more flavour to this meal.
The finished product is as tasty as it looks. You could change the chicken for prawns, beef, pork or even make it veggie.
Hope you enjoy this recipe and you have a go at home, it is yummy x
