Flavorful, juicy chicken, seared and cooked to perfection, served with Mexican style cauliflower rice! This is a healthy, tasty, fun way to eat a favorite, and get added protein and a little extra health kick! Perfect for meal prepping. Lasts 3-5 days.
A simple and delicious spice rub, with added protein, makes this chicken so tasty and easy for prepping for the week. I love having something in the fridge and ready for consumption. It just makes my life so much easier and means I will actually eat lunch. So I have been on quite the meal prep bowl kick. In fact, here are a few of my favorite options for meal prep bowls.

I knew I wanted something with a Mexican flavor twist, and chicken. But I was hoping for something other than traditional rice. So when I saw someone make cauliflower rice and share it on Facebook, I decided to try my hand at a Mexican flavored cauliflower rice. I also added extra protein to it in the form of odorless and flavorless Vital Proteins, which we all know I love!
I used my food processor to take the cauliflower and give it a rice consistency. I think I maybe should not have processed it as much. Then I baked it for a few minutes to dry it out a little. Then I added in some favorites, like black beans, corn. and tomatoes. as well as seasonings that I love. Then I baked it for a few more minutes. When it was done, it got a sprinkle of lime juice and cilantro, and I divided it between my meal prep containers.
Now, I can’t lie and say it is as good as traditional rice with all these fixings. It may have been a textural thing. But I will tell you that I enjoyed it, and found it to be a great substitution. And the flavors were super awesome with the chicken and the dressing I made for the top.
I wanted a tasty dressing with a little kick, extra protein, and a lot of flavor. So I threw some greek yogurt, salsa verde. green onion, cilantro, olive oil, and seasonings into the food processor and then I packaged a bit of it with the chicken and cauliflower rice. When I was ready to serve, I took that part out, heated the rest up, and just drizzled it on top! Delicious.
