Special Fried Rice

OK this is far from conventional with Chorizo in it. But Special Fried Rice isn’t traditional anyway in China so we’re cool with that. We had cooked Chicken thigh meat and ½ a stick of Chorizo which both needed using up. So…..


3 Chicken thighs, cooked and chopped
Chorizo, chopped
1 Onion, finely diced
1 Carrot, finely diced
1 Cup of Peas, thawed in water (Yes we do buy some frozen things, but not many!)
2 Spring Onions, sliced
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp of Soy Sauce (Gluten free for us)
1 Tbsp of Rice Wine
1 Tbsp of Sesame Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
A Thumb of fresh Ginger, minced
1 Cup of Rice, cooked and de-starched by running boiling water through it
Oil to fry


(1) In a large frying pan / Wok heat the Oil and fry the Onions and Carrots, until softened.
(2) Add the Garlic and Ginger and fry for a further few minutes.
(3) Add the Chicken, Chorizo, Peas and stir.
(4) Add the Rice Wine and then gently fold in the cooked Rice.
(5) Add the Spring Onions.
(6) Push all the ingredients to the side and add the Sesame Oil to the space created.
(7) Pour in the beaten Egg and let it set partially.
(8) Fold into the Rice mixture.
(9) Add the Soy Sauce and gently stir in.
(10) Garnish with chopped Spring Onions.

This was the second meal we’ve had out of the £1.69 Yellow Sticker Chicken thighs and the Chorizo was £0.69. Which we’ve had two meals from and still have a bit in the fridge…..
