Recipe: Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowl

     For some reason lately, I've been craving cauliflower rice bowls. I usually go get one at Zoe's but everytime I got ready to go get one, something happens. So, I decided to make one at home. I did a mixture of quinoa & cauliflower rice instead of just the rice by itself. I've been trying to eat better again since I can go to the gym some again. Here is how I made my Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowl:

For the base, I used this Success quinoa & a bag of frozen savory garlic cauliflower rice. I boiled the quinoa on the stove for 10 minutes. I cooked the cauliflower rice for 6 minutes in the microwave.

This is what it looked like after I mixed the two together. I did add some brown rice that I had left over too on this day when I made it for lunch & black chia seeds. Other than that, every other time I made it without the brown. 

For the chicken, I used the seasoning that I've been using on all my chicken lately. I bought this at Wal-Mart. They have other flavors as well like Lemon & Oregano.

I usually brine my chicken for 15 minutes but I didn't have time on this day. Before I sprinkle the seasoning on the chicken, I used butter (unsalted, of course but you can use olive also) to cover both sides of the chicken tenders. Once the seasoning was added, I cooked the chicken at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. 

While the chicken was cooking, I diced a small tomato & added to the rice/quinoa mixture.

I diced up a few slices of cucumber, adding them to one side of the bowl.

I then added 1/2  cup of feta cheese to the rice. 

In the middle of the bowl, I added some tzatziki dip I bought at the store.

Once the chicken was done & cooled for 5-6 minutes, I cut up 3 tenders & added that to the last open spot on the bowl. The above is the end result. You can also make this vegetarian by substituting some of the above items. That is it for this week. I think, I finally have gotten down a posting schedule that I like so we'll see how that turns out.

Peace & Blessings. Have a great weekend, all!!
