kimchi fried rice

  • 2 cups (400g) jasmine rice (see tips)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 200g chicken breast fillets, thinly sliced 
  • 1 x 4cm piece ginger, peeled and grated 
  • 1 cup (280g) kimchi (see tips) 
  • 1 cup (120g) frozen peas, thawed 
  • ¼ cup (60ml) soy sauce 
  • 2 green onions (scallions), shredded
  1. Cook the rice according to packet instructions. Spread the cooked rice over a large flat tray and refrigerate until cold. 
  2. Break up any lumps with a fork. Heat the vegetable and sesame oils in a large wok over high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until golden. Add the ginger and cook for a further 1 minute. Add the rice, kimchi, peas and soy sauce and cook for 2–3 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Serve topped with the green onion. Serves 4.

Tips: Leftover rice that’s been in the fridge (up to 1-day old) is perfect for making fried rice – it’s firmer and less likely to become lumpy. You’ll need 4 cups of cooked rice for this recipe. You can find ready-made kimchi at Asian supermarkets and grocery stores.
