Ingredients

  • 3 tsp Olive Oil
  • cup Broccoli Florets
  • 10.5 ounce Chicken Breasts (300g)
  • Salt & Black Pepper to Taste
  • 2 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • 3 cups Cooked Rice (450g)
  • 2 Small-Medium Eggs

Instructions

  • Heat up 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add broccoli florets and stir-fry these on high heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prep the chicken. Cut the breasts into thin strips. Season them with salt and pepper and rub in the turmeric.
  • When the broccoli is done, transfer it into a bowl.
  • Heat the rest of the olive oil in the pan and throw the seasoned chicken pieces. Stir-fry until cooked through. This will take about 4-5 minutes. When ready, transfer the chicken into the same bowl.
  • In the same pan, fry the rice for a few minutes. Make a well in the middle. Pour in beaten eggs and let them set for a few seconds before scrambling them. When almost done, mix the scrambled eggs with rice.
  • Add the cooked broccoli and chicken and mix around. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Serve while still warm!

Notes

  1. This recipe yields 4 portions (as a main course).
  2. The amount of all the ingredients can be easily adjusted to your liking.
  3. Turmeric will color your hands yellow so I recommend using gloves.
