Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 28, 2020

If you are looking for a healthy, easy and delicious recipe, this chicken cauliflower recipe is for you!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 14oz Chicken breast, cut into small chunks
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • ½ cup red bell peppers, cut in small cubes
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 2 springs Green onion
DIRECTIONS
  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets/Chunks. Working in batches, place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse (in 1-2 second pulses) until the cauliflower has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan, add chopped onion, crushed garlic, and sauté for 5-6 minutes. Add chicken breast chunks, season with salt, pepper. Cook for about 4-5 minutes until the chicken cooked through. Add peas and bell peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  3. Add cauliflower “rice”. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes, until the cauliflower has softened. Don’t overcook it. Turn the heat off and add chopped green onion.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
