Ok, we all know that Chicken Fried Rice isn’t normally made in an air fryer. Chicken fried rice is normally made on the stove in a wok and it’s amazing. However, while it may not be the traditional way of cooking it, I love making it in the Air Fryer!

What Is Chicken Fried Rice?

This take out favorite dish is made with rice, soy sauce, carrots, peas and chicken! I also love to add corn to this recipe when I have leftovers that I need to use!

This recipe is BEST made with leftover white rice!

I Want Fried Rice But I Don’t Have Any Leftover Rice! What Do I Do?

No problem! Just cook up some white rice and then spread it flat onto a baking sheet or large plate. Pop it into the fridge for about 2 hours and let it dry out a bit.

If we make Chicken Broccoli Casserole or Pineapple Sesame Chicken, I always make a little extra rice to pop into the fridge for fried rice later in the week.
