Mediterranean Chicken with Cauliflower Rice

Primal Kitchen vinaigrettes and marinades add herby, slightly sweet flavor to the chicken, and cook the chicken with rich, clean-tasting avocado oil by Primal Kitchen. We keep the carbs low by subbing cauliflower rice instead of regular rice, and bump up the flavor and texture with sweet, chewy sun-dried tomatoes, briny, salty olives, and sharp, creamy feta cheese. Garnish with a few torn fresh basil leaves for a palate-cleansing hint of anise, and enjoy the Italian-Greek mashup.

Ingredients

Instructions

How to prepare the chicken...

  • Place the chicken in a bowl and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinaigrette & Marinade plus 1 tablespoon of Primal Kitchen Italian Vinaigrette & Marinade on top.

  • Flip the chicken so it gets coated in dressing on the other side too.

  • Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.

  • When chicken has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature on the counter (about 10 minutes).

  • Heat an indoor grill pan or cast-iron skillet to medium-high. Add 2 teaspoons of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil to the pan.

  • Cook chicken thigh for about 6 minutes per side, and chicken breast for about 7 minutes per side (depending on how thick your chicken pieces are). Cooked chicken should register 165ºF on a meat thermometer when inserted into the thickest part of the meat.

  • Remove the chicken from the pan and allow to rest on a cutting board for 5-10 minutes. Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces.




How to prepare the cauliflower rice...

  • In a small skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 teaspoon of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil . Add riced cauliflower and cook for about 6–7 minutes, stirring often.

  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.






Assemble the meal...

  • Add cauliflower rice to a bowl or plate.

  • Top with tomatoes, olives, cheese (if using), sliced chicken, and fresh basil (if using).

  • Drizzle with 1 tablespoon (or however much you’d like!) Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinaigrette & Marinade
