Ingredients

For the Chicken

For the Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 medium cauliflower head
  • 1 cup onion — chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves — minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce — any you prefer
  • ½ cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, arrange chicken thighs and sprinkle with all the seasonings (except the olive oil) for the chicken ingredients. Mix everything well and marinate for 15-30 minutes (or over night).
  2. While marinating chicken, make cauliflower rice by pulsing the cauliflower florets in a food processor for about 25-30 seconds until you obtain a rice-like consistency. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, add olive oil over medium-high heat. When the pan smokes just a bit, it’s a sign that it’s properly heated. Place the chicken skin side down, reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 4 – 5 minutes on each side or until chicken reaches 165°F (75°C). Set chicken aside on a plate.
  4. In the same pan, add garlic and onion and sauté for 1 minute until the onions become golden brown. Add the hot sauce and mix well. Add the riced cauliflower and mix everything together. Pour the chicken stock over the cauliflower rice add parsley and lemon juice. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes until the cauliflower gets tender. 5. Adjust seasoning as needed. Return chicken thighs over cauliflower rice and reheat quickly. Enjoy!
