Spicy Chicken Fried Rice
Let’s be honest with ourselves… Take out food is probably the worst and best part of being an adult having what ever you want for dinner. I can’t deny that I myself have done it more times then i am proud to admit! Especially when it comes to Japanese or Chinese takeout food! BUT…
What is the BEST PART about Japanese or Chinese takeout?
If you’re anything like me it’s the rice. I NEEEEDDD ALL THE CARBS!
No but seriously, the fried rice is probably my favorite! All the flavors have melded together in perfect harmony and the smell is unbelievable!

I am so excited to share this spicy chicken fried rice with you! It is probably hands down one of my favorite recipes to make because it is so full of flavor and how incredibly easy it is make (you won’t believe it!).

Spicy Chicken Fried Rice
2 Chicken Breasts cooked and shredded
3 Cups of Cooked Rice
1 cup Frozen corn
2 Cups Frozen peas and chopped carrots mixed
2 red Chile Peppers chopped (you can customize to your taste)
1 cup Slice Mushrooms
1 clove garlic
1/2 of a small white onion
3-4 Tbsp Soy Sauce (depending on your taste)
1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Take a large skillet and preheat the coconut oil. Chop your garlic and place in pan with the onion. Add in your chile peppers, chicken and mushrooms. Let saute for a couple of minutes. Then add in your rice and mix around so that the rice can take on the taste.
Add in your frozen vegetables (you can use fresh vegetables but they need to be cooked and cold before going into the pan). Let the vegetables cook and then add in your soy sauce. Let cook for about 5 minutes on low until all the flavors have melded together.
Serve hot or use as meal prep for the best lunches in the office! Everyone will be envious, trust me!

I mean it had us begging for more when it was gone! This spicy chicken fried rice is out of this world and perfect for lunches, dinner, meal prep, freezer meals, late night dinner (probably when your craving that takeout food the most!), or leftovers! I am always a huge fan of leftovers.
If you’re vegetarian you can make this without the chicken and it is still perfect! Just literally leave out the chicken and scarf down. No big deal.
