  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Ingredient Substitutions:


  • If you’re not a fan of white rice, you can use brown rice or even quinoa instead.
  • If you don’t have frozen peas and carrots, you can use fresh vegetables instead. Some good options include: bell peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli.
  • If you’re not a fan of oyster sauce, you can substitute it with hoisin sauce or teriyaki sauce.
  • If you don’t have green onions, you can use chives or a small amount of diced red onion instead.



  1. Rinse 2 cups of white rice in a fine-mesh strainer and then place it in the Instant Pot.
  2. Add 2 cups of water to the Instant Pot and stir to combine.
  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set the valve to “sealing”. Cook on manual high pressure for 12 minutes.
  4. Once the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then do a quick release.
  5. Fluff the rice with a fork and set it aside.
  6. In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat.
  7. Add 1 small onion, diced, and 2 cloves of minced garlic to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent.
  8. Add 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots to the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  9. Add 2 diced boneless, skinless chicken breasts to the pan and cook until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  10. In a small bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.
  11. Add the sauce to the pan and stir to combine. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  12. Push the chicken and vegetables to one side of the pan and add 3 beaten eggs to the other side. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked through.
  13. Add 2 cups of cooked rice to the pan and stir to combine. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the rice is heated through.
  14. Garnish with 2 chopped green onions and serve
