Chicken Fried “Rice”

Want the taste of Chinese food without all the calories, fat and carbs? This is the perfect one-pot dish that’ll fulfill that craving without the guilt.

If you haven’t yet been introduced to cauliflower rice, you’ve been missing out! It’s a similar texture to rice but has all of the benefits of a veggie, rather than a carb! You can now buy it pre-packaged at most grocery stores and save yourself the time from shredding the cauliflower yourself (you simply do this with a cheese grater if necessary).

Another reason to love this dish.. it can easily be made in one pot for less mess and I often make enough for leftovers for days.

Chicken Fried “Rice”

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower (about 2½ cups chopped in a food processor or grater) or 1 bag
  • 1 pounds chicken breasts (chopped)
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small white onion
  • 2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped green onions (optional)

Directions

  • Chop carrots, onions, green onions and chicken into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Heat sesame oil over low heat and saute onions, 1/2 of the green onions, and carrots for 5 minutes or so. (I like to use my dutch oven for this dish since it’s a huge pot and veggies get a good sear in it)
  • If cauliflower isn’t already shredded, then add it to the food processor
  • Add cauliflower rice and peas to pot and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
  • In a separate saute pan, sear chicken until cooked and mixed with vegetables.
  • Push all vegetables/chicken, over to one side of the pot and cook eggs while stirring occasionally. After two minutes or so, mix all of the ingredients together and add soy sauce.
  • Serve with extra green onions and drizzle sesame oil on top
