I’m not sure if you all have heard yet, but cauliflower is having a great year! No, but, seriously, there’s so many amazing recipes you can make from cauliflower and today I’m going to share one of my very favorites. This Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice is really easy to make, super tasty, healthy and a great recipe to meal prep. I’m hoping if you haven’t given into the cauliflower crazy this recipe will convince you to give it a try!
- 3 Chicken Breasts
- 12 oz Cauliflower Rice
- 12 oz frozen Carrot and Peas Mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 of a diced onion
- 1 table spoon coconut oil
- 2 table spoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp spoon sesame oil
Start by chopping your three chicken breasts into smaller pieces. Spray frying pan with Pam and fry your chicken until completely white throughout and crispy brown on the outside.
In another pan, add your coconut oil, let liquefy and add diced onion to coconut oil. Let brown for 3-5 minutes. Add cauliflower rice, sesame oil, stir and cook for five minutes. Add pea and carrot mix and soy sauce, cook for 3-5 minutes. Divide rice mixture to one side of the pan. Crack and scramble eggs with a fork and add to cleared area of the frying pan. Do not crack and scramble eggs on top of cauliflower rice mixture. It will turn the rice soggy and incorporates much better if fried on side and added in. Flip eggs several times, fry completely before adding to cauliflower mixture. Stir several times. Plate, add chicken on top, throw in your favorite condiment, sriracha, if you’re like me, and dig in.
Also, easy to meal prep for a healthy yummy lunch and snack during the week.
