  • 1/3 cup salsa verde
  • 10 grams Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A little olive oil to get desired consistency.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Process one head of cauliflower in a food processor, until it is the consistency of rice. If you have a smaller processor, you may need to do this in two batches. Set aside
  • In a large oven safe skillet or pan. add 1 Tbs olive oil, and pour cauliflower rice in, spread it out, season with salt and pepper, and put in oven to bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • I have a set of Analon Pan and I love them because they are oven safe and have even heat distribution.
  • Meanwhile, add corn, beans, Vital Protein Collagen Peptides, grape tomatoes cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and lime juice together in a large mixing bowl.
  • When the cauliflower rice is done baking, remove from the oven, and add the corn and bean mixture to it. Stir well.
  • Squeeze lime juice over the top.
  • Bake for 10 more minutes at 400 degrees. When done, set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the chicken seasonings together: cumin, chili powder, and onion powder. Add Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, and salt and pepper as desired.
  • Stir well.
  • Take chicken breasts (best if they are even-ish in size), and pat dry.
  • Then sprinkle seasoning mixture over the top, and rub it in. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add 1 Tbs olive oil, and bring temperature up.
  • Sear chicken in oil on each side, cooking 1-2 minutes until brown.
  • Turn heat down, and cook until cooked through (internal temp of 165 degrees) Approximately 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and set aside.
  • In a food processor, add all dressing ingredients, and process until smooth, use olive oil to get desired consistency.
  • Divide cauliflower rice and chicken out between 4 meal prep containers. Fill smaller containers with the dressing and refrigerate until ready to heat and eat.
  • Keeps for 3-5 days in the fridge.
  • Don't heat the dressing.
  • This is also great as a meal, no need to use only for meal prep.
