Chicken Fried Cauli-Rice

O-M-G this stuff is so good. As soon as my husband said “this is awesome, I would rather have this than regular rice”. I knew it was a hit!! This will definitely be in our rotation.

So, I will be honest – I thought about using fresh cauliflower and making it myself, but I am just too tired for that. After working 9 hours today, frozen cauliflower rice it is! At least its organic…right?

While we do not follow Paleo and Whole30 in our household, we try to as much as possible. If you are very strict on either, you can definitely make some adjustments and it will be just as good!

  • 1Lb Chicken breast
  • 1 bag of Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice (this is just what I had in my freezer. I have tried the Green Giant brand as well, and it was just as good)
  • 1 cup of frozen peas and diced carrots
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut aminos (you can sub this for soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

Let’s chat about coconut aminos for a minute. I had zero clue what this was about a month ago. I follow a lot of Whole30 and Paleo bloggers who live by this stuff. Basically, its a healthy soy sauce. I have an unhealthy relationship with soy sauce, so I figured, I should give it a try. To my surprise, it tastes the same, but is WAY healthier with ZERO salt. Total WIN!!

Start by heating up the sesame oil in a large pan. Then, add the diced chicken. Cook the chicken until it is cooked through and starting to brown and get crispy.

Put aside the chicken. Using the same pan, add the cauliflower rice, carrots and peas and sauté on medium to low heat until cooked through and no longer frozen.

Then add the coconut aminos.

In another small pan, add sesame seeds and toast until golden brown. Add to the mixture.

Lastly, add chicken. Leave on low heat for 10-15 minutes to get all of the good juices marry together.
