Smoking hot thai chicken fried rice

I love rice but I don’t seem to have much of it to eat at the moment for some strange reason!  This is one of those recipes you can make quickly and reheat the following day.  The flavour combinations are endless but this one really hits the spot!

Ingredients for 1 serving

277g chicken breast
76g uncooked basmati rice
52g peppers, cut into cubes
46g onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
1 tsp smoked paprika
6g coconut oil
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
1/2 lime, juice only
5ml fish sauce
10g fresh coriander, chopped
149g broccoli
28g thai green curry paste

(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)

Method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F
  • Sprinkle the smoked paprika to both sides of the chicken breast and wrap in foil – this will keep the juices in while baking.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked and set aside.
  • Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the rice according to the manufacturers instructions.
  • Chop the broccoli into bite sized pieces.
  • 5 minutes before the rice is cooked add the broccoli to cook with the rice.
  • When the rice and broccoli are ready, pour some cold water into the pan to stop the rice and broccoli from over cooking, drain and set aside.
  • Take a frying pan and add the coconut oil.
  • Add the peppers and onion and let them soften for a few minutes.
  • Next add the garlic, dried chillies and thai green curry paste and stir to incorporate the ingredients.
  • Let this cook out for around 5 minutes.
  • When the chicken is baked, cut it into small pieces and add it to the pan along with its juices.
  • Coat the chicken in the mix and take it off the heat.
  • Add the rice and the broccoli to the pan.
  • Then using 2 spoons toss the rice and broccoli into the chicken mixture gently.  You don’t want the rice to start breaking down.
  • Add the lime juice, fish sauce and toss again before adding the coriander.

Time to eat!

Notes

  • You can use pre cooked rice, just use the appropriate amount.
