Mediterranean Fried Cauliflower Rice

Mediterranean Fried Cauliflower Rice

Mediterranean Fried Cauliflower Rice is a one skillet dinner recipe that’s easy, healthy, and full of flavor.

I’ve been on a cauliflower rice recipe kick lately.

It’s so flippin’ good and has less calories and carbs than regular rice, and I swear even my family cannot tell the difference.

And now that school is back in session I am in search of as many quick and easy meals as possible.

How to Make Mediterranean Fried Cauliflower Rice

I made the chicken on the weekend so that it was cooked and ready for me when I got home from work.

A little trick saving some time and stress.

I marinated the chicken in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper and grilled it for a few minutes per side.

Then I diced it and put in the fridge for when I needed it.

In a large skillet over medium to medium high heat I added the oil from the sun dried tomato jar.

Along with a diced onion.

Cook the onion for a few minutes.

Then add the cauliflower rice, diced chicken, sliced sun dried tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, chickpeas, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes for little heat.

This cooks for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

As always, taste for seasoning and add salt, pepper, or even more lemon juice to your taste.

Top with feta cheese and fresh basil leaves before serving and enjoy!
