Chicken Fried Rice

 Crispy on the outside, soft and delicate on the inside with a ton of flavor. A chicken fried rice recipe is one of my all-time favorite dishes, the only downside is that it's hard to make my own without feeling like I'm working in a kitchen mini-factory with every dish requiring a separate pan! That's why I decided to try this Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe for two. Now you can make your food just as delicious without all the hassle.

I love the bold flavors in this dish. The combination of soy, garlic, ginger, and Chinese five-spice blend packs a punch that can't be matched by a "white rice" alternative. It's definitely an upgrade from the fast-food version! If you would like to switch up your usual recipe for something uniquely delicious, try this easy chicken fried rice recipe for two.

Chicken Fried Rice


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 cups uncooked rice (I use Jasmine rice, but anything you like will work!)

3 tablespoons canola oil (for frying the egg noodles)

1/4 cup soy sauce

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce (dark)


Mix together in a large bowl: the canola oil, soy sauce, and dark soy sauce. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. 

Add the chicken, toss to evenly coat, and then set aside.  For the brown sugar glaze: In a small bowl add all ingredients except for extra dark soy sauce. Set aside.  For the vegetables: 

In a large pan, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onions and cook for 1 minute, then add carrots and bell pepper. 

Cook for another 1-2 minutes until the vegetables start to soften. Then add the egg noodles and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes stirring constantly to ensure that the noodles do not stick together or burn on the bottom of the pan.  

Add in the chicken and its marinade, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sugar mixture (that you set aside earlier) into the pan with all of your veggies. Stir everything together along with your sauce mixture until evenly combined.
