Instructions Checklist
  • Stir chicken, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and cornstarch together in a large bowl.

  • Heat a wok or large saucepan over high heat. Swirl in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Spread chicken mixture in a single layer over the surface of the wok; cook for 1 minute. Flip and toss chicken. Spread out again; cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in the wok over medium heat. Add light green part of the scallions, garlic, and ginger; cook and stir until fragrant and softened, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Stir 4 tablespoons soy sauce, cauliflower rice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt into the wok. Cook until cauliflower starts to crisp, about 3 minutes. Stir peas and carrots into the wok. Cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, about 5 minutes.

  • Make a well in the center of the wok; pour in beaten eggs. Stir eggs with a spatula until scrambled, about 2 minutes. Stir in chicken, remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil, dark green parts of the scallions, pineapple, peanuts, and rice vinegar.

Cook's Notes:

Chicken can be marinated for 1 to 6 hours if desired.

If you can't find cauliflower rice at the store, you can make it at home. Remove the core from a 2-pound cauliflower and cut it into large florets. Pulse florets in a food processor in batches until finely chopped, 8 to 10 long pulses per batch.

Substitute canned pineapple for the fresh pineapple if desired.

Pretty much stuck to the recipe. The only thing I may change the next time is make the cauliflower rice separately and put the chicken and veggies on top instead of mixing it all together. I did think it was a bit salty for me but my family thought it was ok. I will make it again. Read More

First time making cauliflower rice; VERY good. Prep is time consuming but result was worth it. Used yellow sweet pepper instead of carrots good. Had various garlic-related items in the fridge (ramps green garlic) added those too. I think you could add most anything and it would be good. Read More

Pretty nice recipe. I made my own "rice" but left in the core because it adds crunch and eliminates waste. I used romanesco cauliflower so it was a beautiful green color. The method is quite simple and true to times. I thought it needed some zip so I added Sriracha and garlic chili sauce to the scrambled eggs. I also added white pepper. Thank you for the recipe.

I halved the recipe but the next time I ll only half the chicken and cauliflower and leave the rest as is so it ll have a greater flavor profile. It was great! Read More

Made this exactly as instructed, and it was delicious. The reason I docked a star is that it took SO LONG to get the ingredients together. And that was using frozen riced cauliflower. Now, I’m not the fastest food preppier, but not the slowest either. That said, once it was finally done (over an hour later), my husband and I loved it. He is trying to control blood sugar so we are trying new things, and I will definitely make this again. Read More

I always follow the recipe the first time out. This is fantastic! (I should say here that I did find the cauliflower rice at my local grocery store & I believe this made prep easier) I m going to try this again with my own modifications...like vegetables in the rice..but everything else will likely stay true to the original. Thank you for sharing this! Read More
