Keto Cheesy Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

Keto Cheesy Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

If you are missing takeout, then this meal is for you! This is my Keto Cheesy Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice recipe. This dish has all of the typical fried rice flavor, without the massive amount of carbs!

Keto Cheesy Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

Does anyone else remember the carb days of eating rice/takeout/carbage, then needing to eat again 5 or so hours later? That is not the case with this meal! You’ll notice my keto version is tremendously more filling/satiating than any takeout! In fact, we can eat this at 1 pm and then not eat again until the next morning. Even better, this is a very easy one skillet meal to make.

Cauliflower Options

Note that with this recipe, and to save time, I used frozen riced cauliflower. If you only have a fresh head of cauliflower, feel free to just break it into smaller pieces and then pulse it in your food processor. Ensure you cook it thoroughly over medium-high heat in a skillet, for about 10-15 minutes before following the rest of my instructions.

Soy Option

With this Keto Cheesy Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice recipe, I kept the ingredients very keto friendly, of course. I focused on butter and olive oil. I stayed far away from canola or vegetable oil, which are very inflammatory! Also, I used coconut aminos rather than soy sauce, etc. I actually avoid anything soy! In the past, when I was vegan, I found it disrupted my blood sugars quite significantly. For instance, to compare, I would need more units of insulin eating tofu vs. this meal of cheesy chicken cauliflower fried rice – if consuming the same amount of carbs overall.

Hope you enjoy!
