  • 200 g Boneless chicken breast/thigh
  • 2 tsp Light soy sauce (for chicken seasoning)
  • 4 cup Cooked rice (details in note) (about 2 small bowls of rice)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cloves Garlic (fine chopped)
  • ½ cup Carrot (small diced)
  • ½ cup Onion (small diced)
  • cup Frozen green peas
  • cup Frozen sweet corn
  • 2-3 Spring Onion (cut thin slices)
  • 3-4 tbsp Oil ( vegetable, peanut, sunflower or canola oil )


  • 3 tbsp Light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp White pepper (Or black pepper)
  • ½ tsp Dark soy sauce


  • Dice the chicken into small cubes. Season the chicken pieces with 2 teaspoon of light soy sauce, mix well and set aside.
  • Cut the carrot and onion into small dices. Finely chop the garlic cloves, cut spring onions into thin slices.
  • In a small mixing bowl, add all the sauce ingredients, mix well and set aside.
  • Whisk two eggs and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok/pan, pour the egg in, once the egg is almost set, break into small pieces. Remove from wok and set aside.
  • In the same wok, drizzle 2-3 tablespoon of oil, add the chicken pieces and stir fry with medium-high heat until the chicken is almost cooked. Then push the chicken one side and add the chopped garlic, stir fry for few seconds.
  • Add the diced onions, stir for few seconds, then follow with the carrots, green peas and sweet corn. Stir fry for 2-3 mins until the vegetables are tender-crisp. ( If you like your vegetables soft, you can stir fry until they are tender soft. )
  • Next, add the rice, pour the sauce in. Stir very fast 1 to 2 minutes, to combine all ingredients. ( to evaporate the sauce and moisture quicker, fry with high heat after you pour the sauce in. )
  • After the sauce and all ingredients are evenly mixed, add the fried egg and spring onions. Stir and cook for another 1 mins, remove from heat and transfer to serving plate.
  • You can garnish with chopped spring onions and if you like it spicy, you can add some chilli oil on the top. Enjoy!


  • Rice: A day old, leftover rice is ideal for fried rice. You can use fresh cooked rice, but sometimes the texture can be mushy when you stir fry it. A day old rice is drier and harder than a fresh cooked rice.
  • Which rice is best for fried rice?
    For Chinese style fried rice recipes, I would recommend to use jasmine rice or medium grain rice. But you can use any of your favourite cooked rice, brown rice, basmati rice, etc.
  • Serving: Serving is for 2 person as a main dish. If you serve with other dishes you can serve up to 4 person as a side dish.
