Real Chics, Real Food: Thai Fried Rice from Skinny Taste
I love fried rice, but I know that I rarely can stop at a portion size so I don't allow myself to order it much. However, this yummy recipe from Skinny Taste not only satisfied my taste buds, but it was filling as well. Shortly after, I also made the recipe using brown rice and it was just as amazing.
In this recipe, I did not add the chicken breast just in case I wanted to eat it with another meat for lunch or dinner later in the week. I also eliminated the tomatoes and used 3 whole eggs instead of 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg. I just have this thing against wasting the half of the egg... I need to invest in some egg whites in the carton for cooking...
The recipe as written comes out to 8 WW Points+ or 320.8 calories. My version (without chicken, tomatoes and using whole eggs) comes out to 7 WW Points+ or 260 calories.
Also, when cooking with the fish sauce... yes, it smells like fish, BUT please add it in to the recipe even if you are nervous (like I was). It really adds an authentic flavor to the rice. I can't imagine fried rice without it now.
