Skinny Chicken Fried Rice

Yield: 6 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 1 heaping cup

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Pacific® Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 — 8.8 oz pouches Uncle Ben’s® Ready Rice® Whole Grain Brown Rice
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 20 green onion stalks, chopped and divided (about 1 cup)

Instructions

  1. In a stockpot, add chicken broth, water and chicken – if necessary, add more water to cover the chicken. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Cover and lower heat to medium-low. Allow chicken breasts to simmer for 15 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle (170°F).
  2. Remove chicken breast from the stockpot and set on plate to slightly cool. When chicken is cool enough to touch, dice into ½-inch cubes and set aside.
  3. Microwave rice according to package directions and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, heat sesame oil in a large, deep skillet on medium heat. Add onion, peas and carrots, garlic, ½ cup of the scallions and "stir fry" until vegetables are tender, about 3-5 minutes. Push vegetable mixture to the outside edges of the skillet to open up the center. Crack eggs into skillet and scramble with a fork. When eggs are cooked through, combine with vegetables.
  5. Add the chicken, brown rice and soy sauce and mix well. Top with remaining ½ cup of scallions.
