Tips from La Tablée des chefs Get the kids to help by cutting some of the vegetables and seasoning the fried rice. They'll be proud to present their masterpiece at lunchtime! Replace chicken with eggs beaten into an omelet and added to the recipe at the same time as the chicken.
Short on time? Replace fresh vegetables with an assortment of mixed frozen veggies you can add to the recipe while still frozen.
