Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 crown broccoli (roughly 4 cups of bite-sized pieces)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)

Chicken

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Make cauliflower rice: cut cauliflower into even-sized pieces. Pulse in a food processor 10-15 times or until it is broken down into uniform cauliflower rice. You can use a box grater if you'd prefer for this step!
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a non-stick pan and heat over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice and cook for 5 or so minutes, until slightly softened. Season with salt and pepper. Divide between four 2 cup capacity storage containers.
  • Add another 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the broccoli and cook for 5-7 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the cooked broccoli to the storage containers with the cauliflower rice.
  • Chicken: Toss the chicken with olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. 
  • Cook in the non-stick pan over medium heat until cooked through; 5-7 minutes. Add the cooked chicken to the storage containers with the cauliflower rice and broccoli.
  • Divide shredded cheese between the four storage containers.

Storage

  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To serve

  • Heat in a microwave until steaming hot. Stir it up and enjoy.
