Ingredients for the Cauliflower Rice:
  • 3 cups raw cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup finely diced zucchini (optional)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Ingredients for the Chicken Breasts:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
  • 2 Tbsp fajita seasoning 
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil  
Instructions for the Cauliflower Rice:
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add cauliflower, onion, zucchini, bell pepper and fajita seasoning and mix well.
  2. Mix in the tomato paste until evenly distributed and then spread the rice evenly over the skillet and let cook until it starts to brown, 3-5 minutes.
  3. Once the bottom starts to brown, stir the rice, even it out again and let bottom brown again. Repeat 3-4 times. The longer it cooks, the more quickly the bottom will brown.
  4. Once it is cooked through, and browned to your liking, stir in the chopped cilantro. 


Instructions for the Chicken Breasts:

  1. Marinate chicken breasts with fajita seasoning. 
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts, cover with a lid and cook for 7.5 minutes. 
  3. Turn chicken over and cook for another 7.5 minutes uncovered. 
  4. Once chicken breasts are done (Always check center of chicken to make sure no pink), slice chicken and serve over cauliflower rice! 
  5. Enjoy!
