Lately, I’ve been making a lot of cauliflower fried rice dishes. Salmon cauliflower fried rice, chicken cauliflower fried rice, etc. If you can’t tell, I really like cauliflower rice.

This chicken version heats up well making it great for meal prep. And after a trip back home filled with a lot of food, including about a billion McDonald’s garlic fries (the seasonal fries are only available in NorCal), I really need to get back to eating healthy again.

This dish is chock full of vegetables. In addition to cauliflower, I also added zucchini, bell peppers, and carrots. And of course, I scrambled in some eggs as I love eggs in my fried rice.

Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice Meal Prep

This low carb, healthy and easy fried rice dish is made with cauliflower rice. It can be made ahead of time for weekly meal prep.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 6 cups of cauliflower rice
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • salt to taste (or about 2-3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • fresh cilantro, optional

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet or wok, add 1 tbsp olive oil and garlic, and bring skillet to medium heat. Stir garlic a few times until lightly browned. Add in chicken and cook until chicken is about two-thirds cooked.
  2. Add in remaining olive oil. Add in cauliflower rice, zucchini, bell peppers and carrots. Stir and cook until vegetables are halfway cooked. Add in sesame oil and soy sauce or salt. Soy sauce has a more complex flavor in addition to adding sodium but it will also turn your fried rice a darker color. For the version in the photos, I only seasoned with salt. Stir until completely mixed and vegetables are tender but still crisp. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  3. Move the cauliflower rice ingredients to one side of your skillet, so that you have enough empty space to cook your eggs. Pour whisked eggs into the empty space. Make swirls with your spatula as the eggs start to cook so that they scramble as they cook. Once eggs are cooked, mix them into the cauliflower fried rice. Turn off heat.
  4. Dish out cauliflower rice into meal prep containers. Garnish with fresh torn cilantro. Allow rice to cool before refrigerating or freezing. Reheat before eating.
