Chicken Fried Rice - Phase 1 and Phase 3

This is comfort food for me.



This is super versatile. And a good way to use up little bits of veggies. Use whatever veggies you have/like. Make this as spicy as you want- we like big, bold flavors in my house, so there is lots of spice. 

Have all your veggies chopped because this cooks super quick. Chop them while the meat marinades. 

You can use quinoa or brown rice- just remember brown rice is only phase 1. Just cook it the day before and let it dry out a bit, for best results.

Get yourself a good non stick pan or wok for p1, use some sesame oil to cook in phase 3. 

You can even use pork for this- just cube up a pork tenderloin. 


Sometimes, in p3, I fry an egg to put on top. 

Chicken Fried Rice
Phase 1 and 3
4 servings


Marinade 
4T tamari
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1T xylitol
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp black pepper

Stir together. Add in your chicken and stir- let marinade while you chop veggies, 15 minutes at least. 

Fried Rice

4 portions chicken, cut into very small pieces
4 portions brown rice or quinoa (depending on the phase), already cooked and a bit dry
6-8 cups chopped veggies- carrot, celery, onion, bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli- whatever you like)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
Tamari to taste
Red pepper flakes if you like spicy
Green onions for garnish
Cilantro for garnish
Sesame oil to cook with- p3 only

Saute the veggies- use sesame oil in p3. Start with the hardest veggies first, then add the softer ones. Stir in the garlic and ginger and season with a splash of tamari. When veggies just start to get soft, remove to a bowl. 

Heat the pan again, and add marinated chicken (drain first and discard the marinade). Brown really good on at least one side, and stir to cook. Remove to bowl when done.

Heat pan last time. Add a bit of oil in p3. Stir fry the rice until it starts to brown just a bit. Splash in some tamari. Stir and cook just a couple minutes to warm. Add veggies and chicken. Stir to re- warm. Taste and add more tamari if needed. Add in the red pepper flakes. Garnish with green onions and cilantro.
