Chilli Lime Chicken and Stir Fried Rice

_DSC3147

I had not eaten stir fried rice for awhile, so today I made stir fried rice with Lime chicken.  I added loads of vegetables. Peas are good for your health as it’s packed with iron and a good source of vitamin K and antioxidant.  Carrots are a good source of Vitamin A, B. C and iron and magnesium.  Additionally, sweet corn is packed with  vitamins and other nutrients.

How to Cook Rice

I use the absorption method to make my rice.  Here is a rule of thumb for every 1 cup of rice add two cups of water.

Add the rice and the water in a pan.  Bring the rice to boil and reduce the heat to low to simmer and cover.  Once all the water is absorbed, use a fork to fluff it make sure it’s cooked.  Put the fire off and leave the lid on the pan.
