Nigerian Fried Rice: One Pot

Updated: Jun 18, 2020

I’m using a one pot method where everything starts and end in one pot rather than cooking the rice and sauce separately. This is my go to way of making Nigerian fried rice, it’s easier and not just that, you just get a more in-depth delicious flavour this way.


700g Rice (I used Golden Sella Basmati Rice, just so perfect for Fried Rice!)

650g Chicken breast (diced)

340g King Prawns (use raw king prawns instead of cooked king prawns if you can)

2 Scotch bonnet peppers

Mixed Vegetables (I used frozen mixed vegetables, it has a mix of carrots, garden peas, green beans and sweetcorn. You can also use fresh)

1 Onion

4 Spring Onions

2 Garlic cloves

Ginger (2 teaspoons grated)

Chicken stock

1 tablespoon Thyme

2 teaspoons Curry powder

2 teaspoons Cayenne pepper

2 Bayleaves

1/2 cup Sunflower oil

Salt, All-Purpose Seasoning, and Knorr Stock Cubes to taste
