FAQs About This Recipe

Can I add more chicken?

Yes! We used .83 pounds in this recipe which was three thin-sliced chicken breasts. There were four chicken breasts in the package and in hindsight, we should have used them all. It would have been 1.05 pounds and still proportioned well for the meal.

How should I store this recipe?

We use 3.4 cup glass meal prep containers for this recipe. This recipe will fill two of these meal prep containers to the top, so adjust accordingly if you’re looking for smaller portions. As long as your containers are airtight and microwaveable, you’re good to go!

Tips From the Kitchen

Use a different rice: I used brown rice just because it’s generally my go-to rice. Had I thought about it a bit, I probably would have used a rice that absorbs liquid better. When I reheated it three days later, the rice was a bit soggier than I expected.

Use slightly less sauce: If you’re like me and typically use brown rice, then you could just opt to use slightly less stir fry sauce for the recipe. I would recommend going with closer to 10 ounces instead of 11.4.

Precook and season the chicken: If you have a few extra minutes and want to add even more flavor to this recipe, I recommend seasoning the chicken with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper and cooking it separately in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Once the chicken is brown on both sides, continue with the recipe as directed in step two.
