This incredible Chicken Fried Rice is delicious and can be made in less than 30 minutes! Moist tender chicken, fluffy rice, veggies, eggs, and the perfect amount of sriracha in every bite. Once you taste it, you won’t want fast food fried rice again.

I have always been a fan of Asian food. I always assumed that making chicken fried rice was something that took a while and was easy to mess up. Thankfully, that couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s actually super simple, and the flavor is insanely good.

It’s amazing that you can whip up a batch of chicken fried rice even on those busy nights, and it comes together in a snap. You can add it alongside all of your favorite Asian dishes or eat it by itself. Clean-up is a breeze too, so you will see it’s a win all around.

Most of the time, I usually happen to have all the ingredients for the chicken fried rice around the house. I try to keep them handy because this dish has become such a staple in our world. Most likely, you have everything you need as well.


  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: The chicken breasts are perfect for giving you a delicious and moist meal.
  • Oil: You can easily use peanut, sesame, vegetable, or canola oil depending on your preference.
  • White Onion: They give you tons of flavor, and texture. You can use green onions if desired.
  • Frozen Peas and Diced Carrots Blend: Adding the veggies gives you some extra nutrients and gives you the authentic fried rice we all love.
  • Garlic: Mince the garlic up fine; it makes the dish fragrant and tasty too. We love lots of garlic, and if you do too, you can always add more.
  • Large eggs: Lightly beat the eggs and scramble them, so they resemble typical fried rice.
  • Cooked Rice: You will need to have the rice cooked before you begin. White long-grain rice is best.
  • Low-sodium Soy Sauce: I love the tangy flavors that soy sauce gives to rice! It’s so good.
  • Salt and Pepper: Just sprinkle on to taste.
  • Siracha: Adding a little sriracha will give you a little bit of spice and heat. You can skip it if you want, but it’s so good.


Making chicken fried rice is simple, as you will soon see. I can’t wait for you to try it at home, so you fall in love! Because it comes together so quickly, you can easily make it on the evenings when you are busy too.

Begin by heating the chicken and oil in a skillet for 4-5 minutes. Then remove the chicken and add in the peas, carrots, and onions and sautee. After a couple of minutes, add in the garlic and cook for an additional minute.

Move the peas and carrots off to the side of the pan then scramble the eggs. Add back in the chicken. Mix in the rice and sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add seasonings and sriracha if desired.


Typical fried rice recipes almost always shave eggs in them. However, if you aren’t a fan of eggs or have a food allergy you can leave them out. It’s completely up to you.

  1. This came out great

    2 questions though..
    Can we use jasmine rice here & how many cups raw jasmine rice would make 3 cups cooked?

    1. Thanks for the feedback! One cup raw makes 3 cups cooked.

  2. What makes the calories in this so high? There are only two tablespoons of oil in it. Is there a mistake in the calculations? Thank you!

  3. Gimme Delicious is literally one of the best weight loss community out there. I read it every day, and I am grateful

  4. Just a question … the instructions say add the green onions with the vegetables but there are no green onions in the ingredient list. Did you mean add the white onion?
    thank you! I want to make this for dinner tonight! Looks delicious …

    1. It actually white onion but green onion can be used if desired. We like white or yellow onion better because of the crunch!
