Preheat oven to 450°F;

Slice green onions into small rounds;

Slice lime into wedges;

Grate carrots;

Core & finely dice bell pepper;

Cut/crush peanuts into smaller pieces.

1Make Rice

In a small medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, & measured water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover & cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed & the rice is tender. Turn off the heat & fluff with a fork. Let rice cool down. 

2Prepare Skewers

Place marinated chicken in a medium bowl, pour marinade over chicken & discard bag. Thread marinated chicken onto skewers.

3Cook Skewers

Line sheet pan with parchment paper/foil. Place skewers on a sheet pan & cook on the top rack of the oven. Cook on one side for 8-10 minutes, then turn over & cook for a further 8-10 minutes until fully cooked & no longer pink inside. Transfer skewers to a separate plate & set aside (cover with foil to keep warm)..

4Make Fried Rice

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in large skillet. Add ginger/garlic/onion mix & cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add all veggies, bell pepper, carrots & peas & cook for a further 3-4 minutes until starting to get tender. Add stir fry sauce & rice. Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes, making sure the rice is coated with the sauce & veggies are tender. Set aside.

5To Serve
