Flavourful curry chicken fried rice with chicken, mushrooms, peas, rice, and curry flavours is so easy to make in less than 10 minutes on busy weeknights.


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup onionsfinely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlicminced
  • 1 boneless and skinless chicken breast, cooked and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup mushroomsfinely chopped
  • 3 cups long grain white rice, cooked (warm or cold)
  • 1/2 cup peas, frozen
  • 2 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat for 2 minutes until the oil starts to sizzle and shimmer. Add onions and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes until fragrant. (Optional: You can add in 1 or 2 beaten eggs and stir fry until fluffy).
  2. Add cubed chicken and mushrooms. Stir fry for another minute to combine. Add in precooked rice and frozen peas. Stir fry for 2 minutes with a spatula to mix everything together.
  3. Add all the seasoning including curry powder, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir for another 2 minutes to combine to evenly distribute the seasonings.
  4. Serve warm on a plate and garnish with chopped parsley.

Notes

Equipment used: large wok or skillet.

Chicken: I used chicken breast, but you can use any part of the chicken. This is a great way to use up any leftovers that you may have from a whole roast chicken or roasted spatchcock chicken.

How to store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. To reheat, place in the microwave or heat on a skillet over the stove for a few minutes.
