Chicken fried rice with cabbage is heavenly. It has fried rice, with perfectly seasoned chicken, scrambled eggs, and sauteed cabbage. It's very flavorful and takes 40 minutes to put together for easy lunches or dinners. 


Units Scale
  • 2 large eggs, scrambled
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, season to taste
  • 1/4 cup ghee or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 lb of chicken breast or chicken thighs, cubed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cup white or brown rice, cooked ( 1 cup dry rice)
  • 3 tablespoons liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • Optional - sliced green onions for garnish


  1. In a large cast-iron skillet, scramble two eggs in butter or vegetable oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. In the same skillet, heat 1-2 tablespoons of ghee or vegetable oil. Add the onions and saute until they are soft and just starting to brown 5 - 7 minutes. Then add in the cubed chicken, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper. Stir everything together. Continue to cook the chicken until it is browned, 7 -10 minutes.

  3. Next, add the shredded cabbage and minced garlic. Cook until the cabbage has cooked down and become tender, 2 - 3 minutes.

  4. Add in the cooked rice, 2 - 3 tablespoons of ghee or vegetable oil, and liquid aminos or soy sauce. Stir everything together. 

  5. Continue stirring frequently and cook until the rice is nice and crispy, adding more oil as neeed. Add in the scrambled eggs. 

  6. Serve with sliced green onions. Enjoy!


Store leftover chicken fried rice in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

Reheat in the oven covered with a lid or aluminum foil. Add a splash of soy sauce or liquid aminos then bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes or until heated through.

Reheat over the stove with a tablespoon of oil on medium-high heat until crispy and reheated through.
