chicken fried rice


As many of you know, I used to produce a daily talk show in Salt Lake City called Good Things Utah. One of the amazingly beautiful and talented hosts of the show, Nicea DeGering, also happens to be one of my favorite people in the whole world. :-) And NOT just because she gave me one of our family’s FAVORITE recipes…Nicea’s Favorite Chicken Fried Rice! (That’s just ONE of the reasons!)

  • 1-2 chicken breasts or 10 chicken tenders cut into very small pieces
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free soy sauce for marinating
  • 3 scrambled eggs
  • 2 carrots finely grated
  • 1/2 white onion finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced or 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 cups cooked white rice not instant


  1. Marinate chicken in soy sauce. Or if you’re in a hurry (which I always am!), just add to cut up chicken before cooking.
  2. In a large frying pan, cook chicken in a small amount of olive oil.
  3. Add carrots and onions and sauté until clear.
  4. Add frozen peas and cook until soft.
  5. Add cooked rice. Add scrambled eggs.
  6. Melt 1/2 cup butter, add garlic, stir and add to mixture.
  7. Mix all the ingredients together well, add soy sauce to taste, and enjoy!
