Chicken Fried Rice

This easy to prepare Chicken fried Rice is a great way to hide extra vegetables in for those fussy easters at home! You can use any meat/ fish/ prawns/ tofu as an alternative for chicken. With minimal ingredients, this will be one of your favourite go-to recipes when you are short for time. I used basmati rice in this recipe but feel free to use cauliflower or broccoli rice.
