Whenever I cook too much rice and I must admit I often do that deliberately. I tub some up in the fridge so I can make this or my basic egg fried rice the next day. Fried rice is a great way of using left over rice and you can add pretty much anything you like to it from the usual food groups of vegetables and protein. When making fried rice you should always used chilled rice, it is near impossible to make a good fried rice with freshly cooked rice, because it all just clumps together and goes stodgy. Not something anyone is going to enjoy. Chicken or Pork fried rice were a staple dish I would order from the Chinese, they just always feel like a complete meal rather than just a bowl or rice.

So when I started Slimming World, I was determined to come up with my own low syn recipe I could enjoy at home. I have to say this is pretty authentic. The best way to do chinese cooking is in a Wok, but personally if you have an electric hob like me, wok cooking is just not the same, you really do need a gas burner, no matter what the label on the wok might say. Ceramic pans are great, you literally need no oil at all, or very little and nothing sticks. Just watch your heat, don’t have it too high. These are great for stir fries, omelettes, pancakes etc if you have an electric hob.

If you don’t fancy Chicken, this dish works well with any protein like shrimp, Pork or tofu. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, Slimming World and Weight Watchers friendly. I am Siobhan, a full time mum and food blogger. I was born in London but now live in Ontario Canada.

However if you don’t have a roast chicken handy, you can use chicken broth and cook up some chicken thighs. Spray a large pot with olive oil spray over a medium high heat, add the onion, carrots, garlic and fry for a few mins to soften. Break up the chicken carcass and add to the pot.

Cover with 2 litres of water and season well with salt and black pepper. Clean pot and spray with some olive oil spray, add the onion, carrots and red pepper and fry approx 5 mins to soften. Add the tomatoes, mixed beans and spices and stir to coat. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil, simmer for approx 20 mins. Add in the rice and chicken and continue to simmer for approx 20mins, until rice is cooked.

Stir in some fresh chopped coriander and season as needed with salt and black pepper. You might also be interested in.

I was looking to see what lasagne recipes you had and I might try the aubergine lasagne one this weekend.

I made this last night and had it for lunch today and it was delicious. But this was so tasty and I think it helped that the stock was homemade too. I am Siobhan, a full time mum and food blogger.
