Instructions
  1. Add the eggs, cream, and salt to a bowl and beat them together until the whites and yolks are well combined.
  2. Take a 10" nonstick frying pan and add the oil. Then, add the onions, carrots and garlic. Sauté them over medium heat until the carrots are tender.
  3. Turn the heat up to high, add the chicken and continue sautéing until the chicken has warmed up.
  4. Add the rice to the pan, and use a spatula to break up the clumps and combine evenly.
  5. Add the ketchup and stir-fry until everything is well combined. Taste the rice and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Use a spatula to gently stir up the curds a few times, but stop stirring just before there isn't enough liquid left to spread out across the pan.
  7. Cover the pan with a lid and turn down the heat to medium low.
  8. You'll know that the eggs are done when they aren't runny anymore, but the top surface still appears wet.
  9. Slide the egg out of the pan and onto a plate and layer the rice on top and roll the omelette like a wrap.
  10. Garnish with ketchup and parsley and serve.
