Instructions

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

  1. First, preheat oven to 400ºF and place cauliflower rice onto a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and spices over cauliflower rice and mix well.
  2. Roast for 15 minutes and begin preparation for the chicken and peppers.
  3. Remove from oven, toss, and roast for 15 more minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and season with cilantro and lime juice. Set aside.

Chicken Breast

  1. Sprinkle about 1.5 teaspoons of fajita seasoning evenly over chicken. Use your hands to make sure seasoning is rubbed into the chicken. You will have leftover fajita seasoning to use for cooking. Set aside for about 20 minutes.
  2.  Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add olive oil.
  3. Thinly slice chicken into strips. When olive oil is fragrant, place chicken into the pan. Sautee every couple minutes until chicken is cooked through (8-10 minutes). Then, add remaining fajita seasoning and give the chicken one last stir. Remove from heat and place chicken into a separate bowl.

Peppers

  1. Place the same skillet pan back onto the stove and add olive oil for the peppers. Scrape the little bits of fond off the sides of the pan. When olive oil is fragrant, add peppers and onion into the pan and sprinkle on fajita seasoning.
  2. Toss peppers and onions together and let cook over medium/high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Then, add two tablespoons of water to the pan, stir, and cover. Let cook for 5 minutes to finish up the peppers!

Bowls

  1. Evenly distribute chicken, peppers, and cauliflower rice into four bowls or meal prep containers.
  2. Top with Avocado Spread and a squeeze of lime juice when ready to eat.
