This is such a savoury and filling meal and you are hitting all the bases with getting a very large portion of vegetables, protein, and healthy fats, and not compromising the flavour at all. The cauliflower rice is such an easy swap, and gets you more veggies and reduces the overall carbohydrate count (and blood sugar crash) by taking out the rice.
- Cooked chicken, leftovers a great option, chopped chicken thighs or chicken breast – approx. 1 cup
- Cauliflower rice (I like the frozen cauliflower rice) – approximately 1 cup
- Small diced vegetables (I used carrots, celery, peppers, broccoli, but you can use anything you have on hand)
- Garlic – 4-8 cloves minced
- Ginger – 1/2 inch knob peeled and minced
- Onion – 1 finely diced
- 1-2 eggs
- Peanuts or cashews (optional for garnish and added crunch)
- Cilantro – chopped for garnish
- Sesame Seeds – sprinkled on
- 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil or sesame sauce
- 4 tbsp Soy sauce (Option to use gluten free Soy sauce instead)
- Garlic powder
- Smoke paprika
- Finely chop all of the garlic, ginger, onions, vegetables, and add to a pan on medium heat with olive oil.
- Sautee in pan until soft, then add frozen cauliflower rice (you can also make your own with fresh cauliflower).
- Add spices; salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika
- Once all veggies are soft, add chicken and stir well.
- Now is time to add the sauce, drizzle on the hoisin sauce and soy sauce, mix all together, reduce the heat to low/medium and move all the contents to the edges of the pan to create a hole.
- Crack the egg(s) on the bare pan, use your spatula to break up and scramble the eggs, once it is all cooked, mix it with the rest of the ingredients.
- Let cook for another 2-3 minutes and get some crispy bits.
- Now put your serving into a bowl and top with nuts of your choice, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds and top with some hot sauce if you like it hot.
- Enjoy and keep leftovers in the fridge for up to a few days for another easy warm-up meal.
