  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into florets with stems trimmed
  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed or cut into strips
  • 8 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, diced (any color)
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, finally chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 cup gape tomatoes, halved


  1. Break the cauliflower into florets, removing the stems, and chop the florets in batches in a chopper, until they turn into rice-like pieces. Remove stubborn pieces and add them to the next batch, but do not over-chop the florets. Add the chopped cauliflower rice to a large sauté pan with 6 tablespoons of coconut oil and sea salt. Sauté covered on a low to medium heat until the rice granules are tender but not mushy, about 10-15 minutes. Stir frequently and check often to prevent the cauliflower from burning or softening too much.
  2. While cauliflower rice is cooking, sauté chicken strips in a separate skillet with the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Once the chicken is cooked through, then add the cumin, oregano, jalapeño, and bell pepper and cook for about 3-5 minutes more, or until ingredients are warmed through.
  3. Transfer rice to bowls and top with chicken mixture. Add additional ingredients such as cilantro, lime, avocado, black olives, or chilies as desired.
