Shredded Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Shredded chicken fried rice just served, hot and delicious.

This shredded chicken fried rice is one recipe you cannot ignore. If you have never really tried any recipe on wives connection? Just cook this shredded chicken fried rice this weekend and watch wonders when your family clears the pot of rice and demands for even more to be preserved. I
explained on Instagram how my 8 year old couldn't believe I was going to cook and serve fried rice without chicken. I have no drumsticks at home, saw croaker in the freezer and I just wanted us to enjoy the rice with some fish. When she entered the kitchen, saw the rice cooking and then saw that I was washing fish, she was so surprised and calmly told me that she has never seen anyone eating fried rice with fish. To convince her there is chicken in the fried rice, I had to bring out the little shredded chicken left in the freezer, dice and cook briefly with salt and onion and then she is happy when she sees me adding the shredded chicken to the fried rice vegetables. No more questions. we all loved this, ate so much and she still requested that I refrigerate some for school. They both came home with empty lunch boxes the next day. My chairman ate so much his stomach was still protruding when I went to pick him after school.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 Cups basmati rice
  • 1 table spoon curry
  • 1 teaspoon vedan seasoning (white maggi)
  • Salt
  • water
  • 6 Knorr seasoning cubes
  • 5 large carrots
  • 4 large tatashey red bell pepper
  • 2 handfuls shredded chicken
  • I cup green peas
  • 3 Cabbage leaves
  • soya oil
  • 3 large onion bulbs
  • 1 large green pepper
  • Croaker 

Fried rice in the making and just served

 The shredded chicken cooking with just salt and onion

Adding the chicken to sauteed vegetables

 Chicken and veggies well mixed

Cooking Proceedure:
First I washed and boiled the rice with curry, salt, vedan and some onion. 
For the vegetables, I chopped and diced all the vegetables. Added to oil before turning on the heat. Then I crushed and added the seasoning cubes ( No, not Crushed. I POUNDED THE SEASONING CUBES WITH A MORTAR AND PESTLE BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO HARD TO CRUSH, EVEN HEAT COULD NOT SOFTEN ordinary seasoning cubes). Checked for salt and seasoning taste, let them cook while I stir until onion looks translucent. I add the already cooked shredded and now diced cooked chicken, mixed well before adding in batches to the cooked rice (That's my lazy man method, you can at this time begin to fry your rice together with the vegetables in batches until cooking is done.
I served with my already fried fish. You can serve with any fish or meat of choice.
Enjoy!
 Still trying to decide on adding all the vegetables or leaving some so it doesn't look too much

Shredded chicken fried rice is cooked.
I didn't take pics from the beginning because there are fried rice recipes with step by step cooking on the blog already. I started taking these pics from when I decided to add the chicken.
Have fun eating, you can request for more if you want


 Have a sumptuous lunch with this hot fried rice. Please do not burn your tongue, it's still steamy hot.

  5. Yes coming back to this post, please Big Sis, why do you cook with Vedan? Or white Maggi? Just curious...I won't be caught dead with white Maggi anyways.

  6. No Habibi, I don't cook with vedan. Never in my soups or stew. I explained on an earlier post on this blog that I like the taste of my rice when I add just a little white maggi to it. Just jollof, fried rice, coconut rice and so on. I don't add to white rice at all. It actually enhances the taste of these other rice recipes I listed. I can't even eat it in soups, porridges or other meals. I don't know how to make you understand how a little makes my rice taste so great and have that rich delicious texture.

    This is a recent development actually. I was maade to believe that MG is bleach and could be poisonous so I never ate it, I never really tried using it until I discovered that other seasoning cubes have that monosodium glutamate(white maggi) in them as one of their ingredients. So, I tried first of all in my jollof, it tasted different and I liked it. I tried with other rice meals, still enjoyed but cannot try it in my soups at all cuz they may just taste sweet like sugar and that's not what I want.
    You don't have to add to your rice, you can cook with your choice of seasoning and I assure you the rice will still taste great. You can adapt, add your twist and share with us if it turns out delicious.
