Chicken, Stir Fried Rice and Veg - another Ninja Foodi recipe

Here’s anther recipe for the Ninja Foodi max.
To begin this recipe there is a little preparation necessary.

Firstly you will need some cooked rice. A recipe for this is available elsewhere in this forum. The rice is used from frozen.

You will also need some barbecue sauce, a simple but tasty recipe follows:

Barbecue sauce. (BBQ Sauce)

5 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp treacle
1 tbsp syrup
2 tsp Worcester Sauce
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt

Put a few tablespoonsful in a bowl for basting the chicken in this recipe.


The next step is to prepare the veg and fried rice.
We used 1/3 this recipe (for two)

6 servings


360g cooked rice
a little turmeric

For Stir Fry:
1 knob of butter
1 tbsp sunflower
2 tbsp unsalted butter
160 g diced onion
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
3 whole eggs, (lightly beaten)
273 g mixed vegetables
2 tbsp Shaoxing wine, (or use dry sherry) [beer]
1 tbsp oyster sauce
58 g soy sauce, (Note: I used 3 teaspoon extra)
½ tsp salt, (or use more according to your liking)
black pepper, (to taste)



Into the Ninja with a mug of water:
3 washed, top and tailed carrot
a handful of frozen green beans
a red pepper, de-seeded

Pressure cook on Hi for 10 minutes, natural release
Drain and dry Ninja bowl.

Split carrot into four lengthwise then cross cut to dice. Put in a bowl.
Cut green beans into short pieces and add to bowl.
Slice red pepper add to bowl.
Chop a couple of mushrooms, add to bowl.
Add a handful of raisins or sultanas.
Add frozen peas.

Add oil and butter to Ninja bowl.
Select “Saute” on setting 3.
When it is hot, add onion, garlic, and ginger, cook, keep stirring until just translucent and fragrant.
Add vegetables from bowl and cook through.

Push all the ingredients to the side to make room for the eggs.
Add beaten eggs into the pot, cook until the top surface of the egg has thickened.
Then, flip the egg and cook until it’s set on that side, too then break it apart.
Push the egg to the side together with the vegetables to make room for the rice.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter to the pot, then add the cooked rice.
Stir and mix the rice with the other ingredients.

Add sherry or beer, soy sauce and oyster sauce.
Keep stirring and adjust seasoning with additional soy sauce or oyster sauce if desired (use an increment of 1 teaspoon each time).
Transfer the fried rice to a clean bowl, cover and put in a warm oven until the chicken is done.

To add saltiness to the dish, just add a small amount of salt.
Do not go overboard with soy sauce or all you’ll taste is soy sauce.
Butter and oil vs oil only? Use a combination of butter and oil for less greasy fried rice.
