Healthy Twist Chicken Fried Rice

I love fried rice! Who’s with me!

I enjoy everything about it. I like the subtle seasonings, tender veggies, and it’s so filling!

In Asian countries it’s not uncommon to see fried rice stands, and lots of variations on the recipes. It’s very diverse!

I am still working on my diet and exercise plan so I lightened up my recipe and it’s ready to share with you!

Here’s what you’ll need:

2-3c cooked brown rice

1c egg whites approximately 6 eggs worth

Coconut oil spray

2 Tbsp Sesame oil

1bunch green onions chopped

1c shredded carrots

1sm pkg. Frozen peas

2 cloves of garlic minced

1.5c. riced cauliflower

Salt/pepper

1/4-1/2 c. Soy sauce (I use low sodium)

1 lb chicken cut into bite sized pieces

Cook your rice according to the package directions. Set aside. Spray wok or skillet with coconut oil and add egg whites. Cook until just set remove from pan and set aside.

Add 1Tbsp of sesame oil to the pan and add all of the vegetables, salt/pepper, and 1/2 of the soy sauce. Cook until vegetables are tender. Scrape off to one side of the pan add second Tbsp of sesame oil and chicken. Cook chicken all the way through. Stir into the vegetables, add the brown rice, eggs, and remaining soy sauce. Stir well and serve hot! Enjoy!!

The riced cauliflower replaces a portion of the brown rice making this a little healthier, very filling, and packed with dietary fiber! A great healthy alternative to the original recipe. Let me know what you think!
