Spicy Thai Chicken with Cauliflower Fried Rice:
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 2 servings
Ingredients for the chicken:
- 1 lb chicken breast (diced into quarter sized pieces)
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- 1 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon sriracha
- 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- dash of salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients for the “rice”:
- 2 cups riced cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1/4 cup corn
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1 slice turkey bacon (pan-fried and diced)
- salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
Sautee chicken on medium-high in pan until brown. Combine almond butter, honey, Sriracha, pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic powder, and salt and pepper in with the chicken. Cook on low until it sticks to the chicken. As this is simmering, heat the sesame oil on medium-high in a cast iron pan. Once it reaches heat, add the cauliflower. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the corn, egg whites, and turkey bacon in with the cauliflower. Top with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and whatever seasonings you desire. Turn the heat down to low and cook for another 5 minutes. All that’s left to do is serve and enjoy!
Optional: Use a half-cored pineapple as a bowl to hold your delicious meal!
Personal note: This is a perfect show stopper meal. It takes very little effort for the beautiful masterpiece that it ends up as! All of the flavors come together to make the delicate sweet and spicy blend. Bonus- it is very healthy and low in carbs. Since the rice is subbed out for cauliflower, the whole meal is only around 15 grams of carbohydrates! Plus, the pineapple bowl is the perfect amount of flashy to impress your guests!
