Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:4 entree sized salads 1x
1 16 oz bag (or 2 cups) of cauliflower rice frozen or fresh
4–5 cups shredded or cut up pieces of romaine lettuce (or greens of your choice)
For the rice: (I like this method because it’s the easiest and the result is fluffy, non soggy rice!)
Preheat your oven to 400.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add the cauliflower rice. Sprinkle lightly with salt and add 1/2 – 1 tbsp of oil of your choice to toss, Then spread rice out in a thin layer. Once the oven is ready, add the baking sheet with rice. Set timer for 20 minutes. Check after 15 minutes for doneness. Put in for 5-10 more minutes if it’s not soft enough. If it’s frozen usually 20 minutes does the trick!
Transfer to a bowl for serving.
For the chicken:
Add about 1 tbsp ghee or oil of your choice to a pan and let it melt over med heat.
Add the chicken thighs, sprinkle generously with salt and chili powder. Use a chili powder or seasoning that contains cumin, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, and oregano to make it easy. I use Morton and Basset Chili Powder or Paleo Powder Pink. Season both sides.
Cook over med heat, turning every few minutes until cooked through and chicken is no longer pink inside.
Once the chicken is done, move to a cutting board and let cool for a few minutes. then dice into bite sized chunks and transfer to a bowl for serving.
Add sliced onions and peppers to a sauté pan with a little ghee or oil. Or use the same pan you cooked the chicken in to cut down on dishes!
Sprinkle with the same seasoning you used on the chicken.
Sautee on med heat until softened but not soggy!
Assemble the bowls:
Start with a base of lettuce and/or cauliflower rice if you don’t want lettuce. I usually do half and half!
Layer in chicken, fajita veggies, cherry tomato halves, avocado cubes, diced red onion to your liking
