Everyone loves eggs, right? As much as we love our eggs, sometimes we deny ourselves our favorite protein due to concerns about fat and cholesterol. Well, you don't have to do this; you can eat your eggs - in the form of AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites!
AllWhites Egg Whites 100% liquid egg whites is a convenient, fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie alternative to regular eggs. You can find it in your grocery store or mass market retailer where eggs are sold, and they come in a handy little carton that is perfect for storing in the fridge. Just like whole eggs, AllWhites® is a great source of protein - but LEAN protein! You can use them to make scrambled egg whites, omelets, or in the place of eggs in your every day cooking and baking. I whipped up this really Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe using them and it was just as delicious as any fried rice recipe. The AllWhites® were a perfect substitution!
AllWhites® are 100% liquid egg whites with no yolk, and they are naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free too! They are a great way to still enjoy eggs when you're watching your diet for health reasons or just because you're following a weight loss plan. I have been doing Weight Watchers for a few months now and I love that I can still enjoy my eggs without using up a ton of points - because they're ZERO points!
I followed this Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe to make a quick dinner for the family before I went out of town, and it couldn't have been easier with AllWhites®!
This recipe is full of yummy stuff like chicken breast, whole grain rice, veggies and a flavorful sauce that's light but still lends a great flavor profile. I made a little extra and immediately put them into storage containers so that Chris and Angeline would have a prepared dinner for one of the nights I was out of town. This really is a great dish to make ahead and is pretty easy to store!
Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe
Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup extra long grain brown rice
- 3 Tbsp. reduced sodium lite soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. dry sherry optional**
- ¼ tsp. Thai-style chili sauce
- 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
- ½ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast halves cut into ½-inch pieces
- ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
- ¼ cup finely chopped green onion
- ¾ cup frozen peas thawed
- 1 cup 8 oz. AllWhites® egg whites
Bring water and rice to a boil in 2-quart saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Cover saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Cook rice over low heat for 35 minutes or until rice is tender.
Meanwhile, in small bowl stir together soy sauce, sherry and chili sauce; set aside.
Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink. Add red bell pepper and green onion. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Add cooked rice and thawed peas. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
Reduce heat to low. Stir in soy sauce mixture. With wooden spoon, push rice mixture to sides of skillet, making large hole in center of skillet for preparing egg.
Pour AllWhites egg whites into center of skillet. As egg starts to set use wooden spoon or spatula to slowly stir egg until eggs are set. Stir rice mixture into egg.
Using leftover cooked brown or white rice cuts your cooking time significantly. Just substitute 3 cups leftover rice in step 4. Or substitute long grain white rice. Cook 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice according to package directions.
