Whether you’re a quinoa fan or not, we believe that you’ll find this chicken fried rice recipe to be just as bold, delicious and satisfying as your local Chinese take out. Actually – we guarantee it.
After you’ve finished prepping, prepare quinoa according to the package instructions.
Add two teaspoons of the canola oil into a large skillet over medium heat. In the same skillet, add onion and cook about 8 minutes, stirring until the onions are cooked through and lightly browned. Remove the onions, set aside; remove skillet from heat.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs with 1/8 teaspoon of soy sauce. Return the skillet to the burner and add remaining teaspoon of canola oil. Swirl to coat the bottom. Add egg mixture, stirring to scramble the eggs. Remove eggs from skillet.
Pour sesame oil into the wok and bring to medium heat. Add the cooked chicken, peas, carrots and the cooked onions; stir until well mixed, about 2 minutes.
Add the quinoa, green onions and bean sprouts and mix together. Continue to stir-fry for another 3 minutes. Add the scrambled eggs and drizzle the entire mixture with the 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until well blended and heated through.
