To make a delicious and spicy chicken fried rice dish, follow these steps:


  • 1 pound chicken breast, chopped
  • 2 large eggs, scrambled
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1 serrano pepper, diced (optional)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 tablespoon spicy red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 4 cups cooked rice, chilled (preferably day-old rice)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • FOR GARNISH: Chopped peppers, spicy chili flakes, sliced green onions


  1. Cook the Eggs: Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large pan or wok to medium-high heat. Add eggs and cook, stirring, until the eggs set and are nice and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Transfer the eggs to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Cook the Chicken and Vegetables: Return the pan to medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add the chopped chicken, peppers, onion, and carrot. Cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring a bit, until the chicken cooks through and the vegetables soften.
  3. Add the Garlic and Spices: Add the garlic, Chinese 5 spice, chili flakes, chili paste, and salt and black pepper to taste. Stir and cook for 1 minute, until you can smell the gorgeous garlic.
  4. Stir Fry the Rice: Add the butter and melt. Stir in the rice, green onions, soy sauce, and fish sauce. Lightly fry the rice for 5 minutes, stirring a bit, until everything is combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spice it Up: Stir in the sriracha, sesame oil, and reserved scrambled eggs. Stir to combine.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Garnish with chopped peppers, spicy chili flakes, and sliced green onions.

Tips and Variations:

  • Use chicken thighs if you prefer a more tender and juicy texture.
  • Adjust the level of spiciness to your liking by adding more or less chili flakes and sriracha.
  • Add other vegetables like peas, corn, or mushrooms to suit your taste.
  • For a healthier option, use brown rice instead of white rice.
  • Experiment with different seasonings like oyster sauce or tamari for added depth of flavor.
