Chicken Fried Rice

3 Tbsp coconut oil
4 chicken thighs, sliced into bite-sized pieces
1 small white onion, diced
1 capsicum, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 chili, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 eggs, whisked with a little salt
4 cups cooked and chilled rice (I prefer short-grain white rice)
3–4 tablespoons soy sauce, or more to taste
2 teaspoons oyster sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp sriracha
Salt and black pepper
Serve with fresh coriander and chopped peanuts


  1. In a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat, heat coconut oil. Cook the chicken until cooked through (white when sliced through the middle). This should take about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. 
  2. Add a little extra coconut oil to the pan and cook the eggs for 2 min
  3. add the onion and cook until soft. Add the capsicum, garlic, chili, carrots and peas cook for another few minutes until the carrot is soft.
  4. Push vegetables to the sides of the pan, add the eggs to the middle, and cook to scramble, stirring as necessary.
  5. Add the cooked chicken, cooking rice, the sauces and salt & pepper. 
  6. Mix well. Taste and season with extra soy sauce, if needed.
