Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb chicken breast diced
  • 1 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 cups cooked rice jasmine preferred
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper optional
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil eg. grapeseed
  • 1/4 medium onion diced
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, marinate the chicken with the shaoxing wine and soy sauce. Set aside. Then, in a separate bowl, mix together the cooked rice with 1 egg, the ginger powder, garlic, powder, white pepper, and 1 teaspoon of oil. Set aside.

  • Lightly beat the remaining egg and season with salt. In a large skillet or wok, heat up a bit of oil over high heat and scramble the eggs until mostly set, but still slightly runny. The eggs will cook a bit more when you fry everything together at the end. Remove and set aside in a bowl.

  • Add some more oil to the pan and cook the chicken breast over medium high heat, until cooked through and lightly browned. Remove the chicken from the pan and add it to the bowl with the eggs.
