  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 cups diced or shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups snow peas or sugar snap peas, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 1/2 cups cooked white or brown rice
  • Peanut Sauce Recipe


  • Sriracha
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Fresh cilantro


  1. Start by making the peanut sauce and set aside.
  2. Add the oil to a large skillet (at least 13 inch) or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, cooking while breaking up into crumbles until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
  3. Add the diced onion to the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened, then add the chopped garlic, ginger paste, salt, garlic powder, cabbage, carrots and sugar snap peas. Stir to combine and cook for 5 minutes, then pour in the chicken broth, cover and steam the vegetables for another 4-5 minutes until softened. Add the rice and toss with the vegetables and chicken.
  4. Pour the peanut sauce over the fried rice a little at a time and toss together until you get the consistency that you like. If the sauce has thickened up too much, add a splash of water and microwave for 15-30 seconds to loosen it up. You might not need all of the peanut sauce, we prefer the fried rice to be less “saucy” but add as much or as little as you like!
  5. Garnish with chopped peanuts, sriracha and cilantro if desired.
