I love Asian flavors and I really love fried rice. It’s super simple to make a homemade version with a lot more nutrition, less fat and calories and controlled amounts of sodium.
This recipe is for one serving, as I often make it for myself for lunch, but you can just simply multiply the ingredients for a family sized recipe.

- Cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray)
- 1 cup chopped baby spinach
- 1/4 cup of chopped onions
- 1/2 sliced bell pepper
- 5-6 thinly sliced baby carrots (or 1 small or medium thinly sliced carrot)
- 1-2 cloves of chopped garlic
- 2 oz. of chopped boneless, skinless cooked chicken breast
- 1 cup of cooked brown rice (I used Birdseye Steamfresh Brown Rice)
- 1 tablespoon of reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
- 1-2 teaspoons of chili sauce, like Sriracha (optional for a little heat)
In a skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat, saute baby spinach, onions, pepper and carrots. Once tender, add garlic and toss to cook until tender, about one minute. Add chicken, rice, soy sauce, sesame oil and chili sauce and toss until well incorporated. Enjoy!
