Directions

  1. Run cauliflower florets through the food processor until it resembles grains of rice.
  2. Season chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper; allow to come to room temperature.
  3. Heat half the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir sweet potato into hot oil until coated; add cinnamon and nutmeg. Cover skillet and cook until potatoes are slightly tender, about 4 minutes. Stir cauliflower 'rice' into sweet potato mixture, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes and cauliflower are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Heat remaining coconut oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add chicken to hot oil and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip chicken breast and stir cauliflower greens into the same skillet, evenly coating with oil. Cover skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and greens are tender, about 3 more minutes. Squeeze lemon juice over chicken mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Use the lemon wedge for the chicken. It works wonders if you accidentally overcook it!
  • Cauliflower rice can be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer.

I had a hard time eating this the first night, but for whatever reason, it tasted MUCH better as leftovers 24 hours later. I also added some celery to it because I had it laying around.

I tried this even though I didn't have cauliflower. I thought the cinnamon and nutmeg were a bit overpowering on the sweet potatoes, but maybe that's because I didn't cook them with the cauliflower rice. The chicken was tasty. I made some quinoa in chicken broth and added the sweet potatoes into that, then served the chicken over it. I would try it again when I have cauliflower.

I have never made a recipe on this website I have disliked until this one. I really only wanted the cauliflower/sweet potato portion of this recipe. I made that part of the recipe as suggested and it was so bland. The only way I could salvage this meal was to add 2 tbsps raw sugar, a tbsp of coriander, 1/2 cup finely ground onion flavored almonds, and a tbsp paprika. It gave it a savory flavor when paired with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Great dish! The cauliflower rice was surprisingly good! Although I thought this recipe could use a little more flavor my family (including my mother-in-law) thought it was perfect just as is.
