Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- First let’s make the cilantro lime cream –
- Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until deliciously creamy and well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed then transfer into a small bowl, jug or mason jar and store in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
- Next up let’s make our quick and easy, cheats pico –
- Place all ingredients into a small bowl and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Place in the fridge until your ready to assemble your delicious little burrito bowl.
- Now, onto the chicken –
- – Sprinkle both sides of your chicken with Mexican seasoning and give it a nice little massage to make sure its nice and evenly (and thoroughly) coated.
- – Place a fry pan over medium high heat, drizzle with a little coconut oil (or cooking fat of choice) and cook chicken for 3-4 minutes each side until deliciously golden and cooked through.
- – Once your chicken is cooked, squeeze over your lime juice and transfer to a plate (or chopping) board, cover to keep warm and allow it to rest while you cook your “rice” then chop it up into bite size pieces to serve.
- Lastly, let’s make our rice –
- – Place a fry pan over medium-high heat, add coconut oil (or cooking fat of choice) and cauliflower rice and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally (do not over-stir or it will go mushy) until cooked through.
- – Once your rice is cooked, add cilantro (coriander), lime juice and season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Build your bowl –
- Divide cauli-rice between two serving dishes, add chicken, avocado, pico + a generous drizzle of our dreamy, cilantro lime cream, a little extra cilantro (coriander), some sliced jalapenos’, a few dashes of your fave hot sauce and crumble over your plantain (or tortilla) chips if desired.
