Not your takeouts Chicken Fried Rice...

So very often I call upon this quick meal - total time is less than 20 mins start to finish and it goes down a treat with adults and kids of all ages! This serves around 6 bump up or down ingredients for your family size - this freezes reasonably well too.

1 tablespoon canola oil
4 Tablespoons of minced garlic (I like the big squeezy bottles of it - can never have enough garlic!)
2 pound chicken breasts cut into long thin pieces
2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper sliced into thin strips
2 cups sugar snap peas
1 cup of frozen peas
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 packs of microwaveable rice


Heat oil in a very large skillet or a cast iron pot (my preference) over medium-high heat. Add garlic and brown without burning. Add chicken and cook until it starts to brown. Add onions and peppers and cook until the onion catches a bit - approx a minute. Throw in the broccoli, snap peas and green peas and cook just until the broccoli is tender.Put in the soy sauce and the microwaved rice and mix as it cooks a further few minutes. Enjoy!
