Ingredients

For the Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup less sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil (or other mild oil of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

For the Fried Rice:

  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups frozen baby broccoli florets steamed in the microwave until just crisp-tender (about 1 ½ - 2 minutes)
  • 1 cup frozen peas or shelled edamame, (NOT thawed)
  • 1 ½ cups cooked, diced chicken (I like to use the meat from a store-bought rotisserie chicken)
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • Optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds; chopped peanuts

Instructions

Prepare the Sauce:

  • Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

Prepare the Fried Rice:

  • In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and stir eggs over medium heat until no liquid egg remains, breaking up eggs into small pieces. Remove from pan; wipe skillet clean if necessary.
  • In same pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, broccoli, and peas; stir fry 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add chicken, rice, and approximately half of the sauce to the skillet. Stir until combined.
  • Add cooked eggs and green onions; heat through.
  • Stir in additional sauce, as desired. Top with chopped peanuts and sesame seeds.
