I’m on a fried rice kick right now – with quinoa or brown rice, those are my go-tos. I’m loving frozen microwavable rice and quinoa from Trader Joe’s to make these recipes really come together quickly. I never used my microwave for anything else other than instant oatmeal until I realized this quick trick.

Now, a vegetable packed, flavorful fried rice dish is just minutes away! I made this dish on my Instagram months ago and everyone asked for the recipe immediately! I love the simplicity of the chicken and Brussels sprouts, but if you want to make this more of a true fried rice, stir in some green peas. I used ginger here, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can omit it -it won’t make that big of a difference in flavor.

I love reheating rice the next day on the stovetop- it makes the rice a bit crispier for that true ‘fried rice’ texture. You may want to give another drizzle of sesame oil to amp the flavor up if you’re reheating or an extra dousing of soy sauce.

Make this while Brussels sprouts are still in season and local! And I guess that means I’ll have to make a summer version of this fried rice next…
