Chinese Fried Rice By Chef Mitchel Brett Govender


I am a big fan of Asian food. Since moving to USA, I have learnt so much about Asian foods. It is such a huge cuisine here and fried rice is, by far, my favourite Asian dish. Fried rice is perfect if you have left over rice from the night before. This dish allows you to be creative. You may add all types of veggies that you prefer and even different proteins, such as chicken, steak, and prawns. You may even leave out proteins entirely for a vegetarian option. This is the perfect dish to share with friends and family.



2 cups white rice (cooked)

¼ cup red peppers – diced

¼ cup broccoli florets

¼ cup grated carrots

¼ cup coriander leaves

¼ cup spring onions – chopped

2 chicken breast – cubed

1/3 cup soy sauce

3 tbsp sesame seed oil

3 scrambled eggs



In a wok on medium heat, add sesame oil.

Wait until the oil is nice and hot, then add chicken breast cube. Season with salt and pepper.

Give the breast cubes a good sear for 3 minutes. Add red peppers and broccoli florets and allow to cook for 2 minutes.

Now add rice and carrots cook for some two minutes give it a good mix, all the while, making sure that the rice does not stick to the Wok.

Add soy sauce and give it a good mix cook for a minute.

Remove of the heat and add springs onions, coriander and scrambled eggs.

Toss everything together, season with salt and pepper to taste …garnish with spring onions and coriander
