Servings 4 People


  • Pan


  • 1 Bunch Scallions
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger
  • 1 each Red Pepper
  • 2 Each Eggs
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Cup Cooked Chicken
  • 4 Cups Cooked Rice
  • 6 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Pinch salt
  • 1 Pinch Pepper


  • Cut the green onion and separate the white from the green. Next chop the red pepper and set aside. Make sure to also mince the ginger before you start cooking.
  • Place the pan on medium heat and pour in the oil. In that same pan add the white part of the scallion and the red pepper. Let it cook for about 5 minutes before adding the ginger.
  • While the scallions and peppers are cooking, scramble the 2 eggs and then cook it in a different pan. You want to make the eggs look like a pancake (so do not scramble it!). Once the egg is cooked, slice it and put to the side.
  • Add the cooked chicken into the pan with the scallions. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Next you want to add the cooked rice and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Once you season, add the soy sauce.
  • You can determine how much soy sauce you need by how much flavor you’d like. If you’d like it to be light on the soy, you can add less than 6 TBSP.
  • Once everything is mixed together, add the sliced egg and the green scallions on top. Mix and serve.
