Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 25 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 10 oz chicken breasts, or chicken thighs, boneless & skinless, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp ginger, finely minced or grated
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 3 cups long grain rice, cooked and cooled

To serve:

  7. Increase it to medium heat, saute and stir until the egg has been well incorporated into the rice.

  8. Add cashew nuts and sesame oil or chili-infused oil. Toss to combine.
