Prepare rice, see recipe for boiled rice. The rice is best cooked when it's cooled down, but this is not necessary.


Cut the chicken into strips and fry in a wok for three minutes. Once cooked, place in a dish to the side and begin cooking instructions. Alternatively you could use leftover chicken from your Sunday roast.

Ready? Let's cook!


Heat oil in a wok, on high heat until hot.


Pour beaten egg into wok, stirring constantly. When egg has cooked a little into a scramble (about 30 seconds to 1 minute) add frozen peas, sliced cooked chicken and stir for a minute.


Next add in the boiled rice into the wok and fry for three minutes. If it's cold rice, fry for 6 minutes and press out the lumps with the spatula.
