From the GI diet by Rick Gallop. "Chinese fried rice is generally high in fat and low in protein and fibre. This low-GI version is loaded with chicken and colourful vegetables and won't leave you feeling hungry again soon after eating it." - from his website.

This is going to become a regular in our house. The husband and I both loved it. I was afraid the soy sauce and broth added at the end looked a bit soupy, but it was fine. My advice: Have faith in the recipe and cook for the full five minutes. Everything will be fine! Thanks for sharing this one. :)
