Sweet and Savory Ginger Chicken with Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice | SweetLeaf®

Ingredients:

Chicken

  • 1 packet SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. ginger, freshly grated
  • 8 Tbsp. reduced-sodium tamari
  • 4 Tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 15 drops sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice

Rice

  • 10 drops SweetLeaf® 50ml Liquid Stevia Coconut Sweet Drops™
  • 4 cups of cauliflower, about 1 medium-sized head of cauliflower
  • 1 tsp. avocado oil or olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin, powdered
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 5 Tbsp. coconut cream, whole cream without water: turn over coconut milk can in fridge overnight and use cream for recipe
  • 4 Tbsp. cilantro, fresh, diced

Directions:

Take chicken breasts and place into a large zip-top bag. Mix ginger, tamari, oil, garlic, sriracha, SweetLeaf, and lime juice in bowl with a whisk. Once incorporated, pour into the baggie with the chicken and mix around. Place in the fridge and let marinade for 4-6 hours. Grill on a barbecue on medium until cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes per side. Let cooked chicken rest on a plate for 5 minutes before serving.

To make the cauliflower rice, put cauliflower florets through a food processor cheese grater attachment. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater. Grate cauliflower, it should resemble the size of a grain of rice.

Mix Coconut Sweet Drops, lime juice, cumin, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper in small bowl and set aside.

Heat a frying pan on medium and add avocado oil. Then add cauliflower rice and pour in spice mixture, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Add freshly diced cilantro and coconut cream. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Rice is ready when it is soft. You can cook a bit longer to get it a little crispy, if you are looking for a crunchy texture.

Put in a serving bowl, top with Ginger Chicken, and garnish with extra cilantro.
