Nutrition: per serving



  • 300 g Rice Basmati
  • 500 g Chicken Breast Boneless, skinless
  • 100 g Peas Frozen
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Minced
  • 2 Carrots Peeled, diced
  • 2 Eggs Lightly beaten
  • 4 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper To taste
  • Coriander Optional, garnish


  • Rinse the rice thoroughly in a sieve and add to a saucepan with 600ml cold water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
  • Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed.
  • Remove from heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  • While the rice is cooking, preheat a grill or grill pan on medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and grill for about 5-6 minutes on each side or until fully cooked. Let cool for a few minutes before shredding it with a fork.
  • Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan over high heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until soft and fragrant. Add the carrots and stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes or until they start to soften.
  • Push the vegetables to the side of the pan and add the beaten eggs. Scramble them for about 30 seconds until cooked through, then mix them in with the vegetables.
  • Add the shredded chicken and frozen peas to the pan and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes or until the peas are heated through.
  • Add the cooked rice and soy sauce to the pan and stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes or until the rice is fully coated and heated through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve hot, garnished with fresh coriander, if desired.
