Prep Time
10 min
  1. 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. 2 tbsp. olive oil or grapeseed oil
  3. 1/2 head cauliflower (or about 4 cups of riced cauliflower)
  4. 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  5. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 red bell pepper, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
  7. 1 green bell pepper, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
  8. 1 (10 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained
  9. 1/2 fresh jalapeno, seeds removed and diced (optional)
Seasonings Mixture
  1. 3/4 tsp. cayenne
  2. 1/2 tsp. salt
  3. 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  4. 3/4 tsp. paprika
  5. 1/4 tsp. ground mustard
  6. 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  7. 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  8. 1/2 tsp. cumin
  1. Combine all your seasoning ingredients into a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut cauliflower into smaller florets. Place florets into a food processor (you may need to do this in 2-3 batches). Pulse the food processor until the cauliflower turns into a "rice" looking texture. Set aside. OR, I love buying Trader Joe's frozen organic cauli rice to save a little time!
  3. Rinse and pat dry chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper. Chop into 1-inch cubes.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp. oil. Add your cubed chicken. Cook for about 7-8 minutes.
  5. Add your chopped white onion, garlic, jalapeño, diced tomatoes and sliced red/green bell pepper. Saute for 5 minutes.
  6. Add your riced cauliflower and the seasonings mixture. Saute for 4 more minutes.
