Notes
  • This is a healthier fried rice recipe as the rice to veggie and chicken ratio is lower and it uses less oil than normal.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days so feel free to make a big batch for meal prep!
  • Feel free to substitute monkfruit erythritol sweetener with any other sweetener of choice.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of sriracha used according to your spice preference.
  • Feel free to substitute broccoli and carrot with any other vegetables of choice! Some other suggestions are: corn kernels, chinese broccoli, capsicum.
