Soyaki Chicken Fried Rice

We love fried rice. So quick, easy and tasty. We have made Char Siu and Fried Rice and Fried Rice with Kale and Scallions and decided to make soyaki chicken fried rice with a bit of leftover rice.

Leftover rice is usually the best rice, because it absorbs more of the soyaki sauce and is a perfect base for the vegetables and aromatics. This was a delicious and fast evening meal.

Serves 2-3

  • 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki marinade
  • 2 chicken breasts whole or cubed
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/8 cup chopped carrot

  • 1 spring onions or 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbsp butter or Earth Balance

Add another tablespoon of butter to the wok or pan if necessary and, when hot add the beaten egg to form a thin pancake then scramble.

Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in the wok or pan, when hot stir-fry the chicken for 3 minutes on each side. Reserve the soyaki sauce and add to the stir fried chicken and reduce.
