This recipe turns traditional takeout chinese fried rice into a homemade meal with a twist.


  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 lb chicken cutlets, cubed
  • 1 bag Frozen Asian vegetables
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 green onion (green parts)
  • 2 tsp Sesame seeds
  • Pepper


  1. Heat sesame oil on medium-high heat in a pan. Once heated add cubed chicken cutlets. Pan fry until cooked through. Remove from the pan and place to the side.
  2. Add frozen vegetables to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add eggs and scramble in the pan.
  3. Once the eggs are cooked add the cooked brown rice, cooked chicken, fennel seeds, soy sauce, and pepper.
  4. Stir well to combine. Let the heat crisp some of the rice on the bottom by creating one layer and letting the mixture sit without stirring for a minute or two.
  5. Remove from heat and serve immediately with green onions as a garnish. Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days.
