Sriracha Chicken Fried Rice

January 15, 2018Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2018

Oh my gosh, Sriracha Chicken Fried Rice is fantastic! I love Fried Rice anyway, but add a dash of Sriracha sauce and it becomes amazing. Seriously. This delicious entree is made with tons of veggies. I included frozen mixed vegetables along with bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, bell peppers, onions and garlic. In order to keep the recipe gluten free I chose to use Sriracha sauce instead of the traditional oyster sauce (which also bumps up the flavor).

This fried rice was something special. I worried about whether or not the Sriracha sauce would be too strong. For the quantity I made, however, it was perfect. Plus, I liked the fact that this is a 30-minute meal if you have your rice pre-cooked. That makes it perfect for weeknight meals.

A couple of tips: I make the rice either the night before or early in the morning so it can be cold when adding to the recipe. I use one cup of brown rice for 3 cups of water when cooking. The rice plumps out quite well that way and it’s not tough. Second, when you scramble the eggs, you may need to turn your heat down a little so they cook up nicely and don’t burn.

Third, while I chose the veggies listed, you can add more or take away what you don’t want to use. Fourth, cut your meat into small pieces if possible. I would recommend even smaller pieces then what is shown here. Especially if you want to make large batches for freezer meals (which is what I did). But the cooking time will also decrease if the chicken is reduced in size.

Fifth, have all your meat and veggies prepped and ready to go when you begin the recipe. It goes very fast and if you’re still trying to chop up veggies when the other stuff is ready, you may end up with some veggies over-cooked and others just barely cooked. Sixth, use a gluten free low-sodium soy sauce so the soy sauce doesn’t overpower the dish with sodium.

If you’re looking for an outstanding 30-minute weeknight meal that’s healthy and gluten free, I can’t recommend Sriracha Chicken Fried Rice highly enough. Especially if you like a little zip in your meals. This has heat without being overpowering. It’s also got a delightful crunch from the bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. We loved it and believe you will too.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients. I swapped out the oyster sauce for Sriracha sauce so I could keep the recipe gluten free.

Pre-cook your rice and refrigerate until cold. I used 2 cups of brown rice with 6 cups of water and cooked down slowly.
