Directions

  • Run cauliflower florets through the food processor until it resembles grains of rice.

  • Season chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper; allow to come to room temperature.

  • Heat half the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir sweet potato into hot oil until coated; add cinnamon and nutmeg. Cover skillet and cook until potatoes are slightly tender, about 4 minutes. Stir cauliflower 'rice' into sweet potato mixture, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes and cauliflower are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Heat remaining coconut oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add chicken to hot oil and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip chicken breast and stir cauliflower greens into the same skillet, evenly coating with oil. Cover skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and greens are tender, about 3 more minutes. Squeeze lemon juice over chicken mixture.

Cook's Note:

Use the lemon wedge for the chicken. It works wonders if you accidentally overcook it!

Cauliflower rice can be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I had a hard time eating this the first night but for whatever reason it tasted MUCH better as leftovers 24 hours later. I also added some celery to it because I had it laying around. Read More

It was good and very healthy thank you. However I found the chicken to be bland and the next time I'll add garlic to the chicken or a caper sauce. I chopped up 2 cups sweet potatoes in a chucky hash and cooked with sweet onion until golden. I had more cauliflower to cook so I probably doubled the recommendation. Due to that I had to compensate to overcome the cauliflower bitterness. So I plump up dried cranberries in warm water chopped fine and added. Also toasted 1/4 cup sliced almonds to add. Lastly I lightly drizzled about 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup. I'm glad my husband liked it very much. (and he hates cauliflower) Read More

I tried this even though I didn't have cauliflower. I thought the cinnamon and nutmeg were a bit overpowering on the sweet potatoes but maybe that's because I didn't cook them with the cauliflower rice. The chicken was tasty. I made some quinoa in chicken broth and added the sweet potatoes into that then served the chicken over it. I would try it again when I have cauliflower. Read More

I have never made a recipe on this website I have disliked until this one. I really only wanted the cauliflower/sweet potato portion of this recipe. I made that part of the recipe as suggested and it was so bland. The only way I could salvage this meal was to add 2 tbsps raw sugar a tbsp of coriander 1/2 cup finely ground onion flavored almonds and a tbsp paprika. It gave it a savory flavor when paired with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Read More

Add a clove of minced garlic to the stir frying of the cauliflower and needed chicken broth to add extra moisture to the potatoes and cauliflower. Read More

I used miso tamari in the cauliflower/sweet potato mix to enrich and give depth. I also used pickled lemon which is far more interesting in the chicken. I finely cut the lemon and sauteed and then added some of the pickled juice. Read More

After reading some of the less than ideal reviews I decided to simply make a meal with the basic items cooked separately. Slice whole cauliflower thin coat w/olive oil salt and roast in shallow pan. Pan fry chicken but add some garlic and cook sweet potatoes as noted but add a little salt and/or butter. Why ruin good ingredients? Plus forget ricing the darn cauliflower- it s so good carmelized and roasted. Read More

Great dish! The cauliflower rice was surprisingly good! Although I thought this recipe could use a little more flavor my family (including my mother-in-law) thought it was perfect just as is. Read More
