Better than takeout and packed with protein, this coglomeration of crispy chicken, riced broccoli, and all your favorite stir-fry veggies is perfect for a night in. No wok required: just fire up your cast iron skillet and prepare for a meal that rivals every fried rice you've had before!



  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups broccoli, riced
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3 large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, beaten
  • Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish


  • Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden and no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add onion and carrot to skillet and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Stir in riced broccoli and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add soy sauce and peas and season with salt and pepper. Cook until peas are warmed through, about 2 minutes more.
  • Push riced broccoli mixture to one side of skillet and pour eggs into other side. Scramble until just set, then stir into riced broccoli mixture.
  • Cut chicken breasts into 3/4-inch cubes and stir into fried "rice."
  • Garnish with green onions before serving.


To rice the broccoli, place in food processor and pulse until pieces resemble the size of rice grains. Alternatively, use a box grater.
