Low Carb Buffalo Chicken and Broccoli Power Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 12 oz bag of broccoli florets (or 4 cups florets), cooked to your liking
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

For riced cauliflower:

  • 1 Large Head Cauliflower (or small bag of riced cauliflower)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Instructions

    1. Remove all greens from cauliflower and cut into sections, large enough to handle or small enough for your food processor.
    2. Wash and thoroughly dry the cauliflower sections.
    3. Either grate the cauliflower using a box grater or pulse using a food processor to make rice-sized pieces. Set aside in a large bowl.
    4. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil on medium high heat. Add chicken pieces and season with salt and pepper.
    5. Brown chicken on both sides for about 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
    6. Next, mix remaining 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil and hot sauce until well combined. Pour hot sauce mixture over chicken and toss until combined. Keep the skillet on low and allow flavors to marry.
    7. Next, finish cooking riced cauliflower. In a separate large pan heat 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil over medium high heat.
    8. Once the pan is very hot, add riced cauliflower and season with salt and pepper.
    9. Sauté for 3 minutes.
    10. To prepare your power bowl, add cauliflower rice to bowls, top with buffalo chicken and cooked broccoli florets.
    11. Garnish with sesame seeds, green onion, or cilantro (optional).

Notes

Note about broccoli: If you prefer your broccoli to be covered with buffalo sauce, add cooked broccoli to chicken along with sauce and toss gently until fully coated in step 6 above. Allow flavors to marry.
