Healthy Chicken Fried Rice (Low G.i.)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by little_wing

Trying to accumulate some recipes that are high in fiber and protein but low in fat. This is actually just as good as regular fried rice. If you can't find fresh bean sprouts, just omit them because the ones in a can are sorta gross! Found that out the hard way!

I have a near-identical recipe from Rick Gallop's website - www.gidiet.com (his "Living the GI Diet" book is a great source of many tasty healthy recipes). But I follow his suggestion of adding 1 cup canned chickpeas (garbanzos) -- this increases the fiber, lowering the GI even further, and makes it more filling and tasty!
