How To Make Syn Free Chicken Fried Rice
To make this recipe you simply need a few ingredients, a large frying pan or wok (available on Amazon) and half an hour of your time! If you’re meal prepping it for your work lunches then I really recommend getting some good, reusable meal prep containers (also available on Amazon) which will help save money and plastic waste.
I have used a mixture of peas, carrots, onion and a yellow pepper as my veggies in this recipe, along with the spring onion, chilli and garlic. This means you’ve got plenty of speed food along with your rice if you’re following Slimming World, but if you want to have even more you could do a side dish of chilli and garlic fried broccoli or spiralised carrot noodles!
