Chicken, vegetables and Sriracha fried rice Chicken, vegetables and Sriracha rice

A complete meal in one bowl, this dish has meat, vegetables, carbs (no, I am not scared of carbs) and lots of flavor. It’s another example of how simple ingredients can be turned into a fantastic dish by following two basic cooking techniques: 1) stir frying basics and 2) layering the flavors. The links are provided and I really recommend that you read the linked articles. Trust me — once you master the basics, every dish you cook will have that gourmet touch.

Recipe: Chicken, vegetables and Sriracha fried rice


  • 3 tbsps. of vegetable oil
  • 1 small carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 c. of corn kernels — fresh, canned or frozen (thawed, if frozen)
  • 1/3 c. of frozen sweet peas, thawed (substituting canned would be a bad idea)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. of minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. of minced ginger
  • diced cooked meat of one chicken breast (about 2 cups after dicing)
  • 3 tbsps. of oyster sauce
  • 3 to 4 tbsps. of Sriracha (or your hot sauce of choice)
  • 2 c. of cooked rice, grains separated
  • a drizzle of sesame seed oil
  • thinly sliced scallions, to garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a pre-heated wok or frying pan until smoking. Add the carrot, corn and peas. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir fry for about a minute.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger. Stir fry for 30 seconds.
  3. Throw in the chicken. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Stir fry for another 30 seconds.
  4. Pour in 1 tbsp. of oyster sauce and 1 tbsp. of Sriracha. Stir fry for another 30 seconds.
  5. Add the rice to the chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with more salt (more pepper might not be necessary at this point). Stir a few times.
  6. Pour in the remaining oyster sauce and Sriracha. Stir fry until the rice is heated through.
  7. Drizzle in the sesame seed oil. Stir a few more times.
  8. Garnish with sliced scallions and serve hot.

Before, when i am reading other food blogs and stumble upon words or techniques that im not familiar with(i love cooking but im not good with terms for i just use my senses when i cook…. Bit now i guess i have to be familiar with it!????), i usually google it and read the blogs again. But in your blogs everything, even the smallest detail is well explained! Thanks!!!

      Don’t worry, there are enough days in every year to try everything. :) A suggestion: you might want to start with the recipe for which you already have all the ingredients so there’s no need to run to the grocery. Gratification in an hour or less. :D
