I am obsessed with this dish. It is so simple yet superb. A pretty nice addition to your weekly menu. Rice, peas,  with vegetables in a sweet and savory sauce. Yum! I have been loving this short-grain born rice dish. Loaded with goodness and amazing flavors that I crave over and over again. Perfect to serve right away but freeze for a novel freezer meal. The flavor of this Garlic Chicken fried Brown Rice is so much better than your local take-out fried rice. I urge you to give this a try and I am a hundred percent sure that you’ll want this even more.

Ingredients

2 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
8 oz of skinless and boneless chicken breast, cut into strips
½ red bell pepper, chopped
½ cup green onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cooked brown rice
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 cup frozen peas, thawed

HOW TO MAKE GARLIC CHICKEN FRIED BROWN RICE

Step 1: In a large skillet, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Het over medium heat. When hot, add the chicken, bell pepper, green onion, and garlic. Sautee for about 5 minutes until the chicken is cook through.

Step 2: Transfer the chicken onto a plate and keep warm.

Step 3: Using the same skillet, add the rest of the vegetable oil. Heat over medium-high heat, then, add in the rice. Stir and cook until heated through. Add in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and peas. Stir and continue cooking for another minute. Place the chicken back into the skillet and mix to combine.

Step 4: Heat through and serve. Enjoy!

NOTE:

To save time, I recommend using 2 ready-to-serve rice pouches. Frozen peas that are mixed with rice don’t need to be thawed.
