- 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (or 1 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts)
1 Tablespoon (1 capful) Stacey Hawkins Honey BBQ Seasoning
1 Tablespoon (1 capful) Stacey Hawkins Wok On Seasoning
2 cups bell peppers, red and green, sliced thin
2 cups riced cauliflower, fresh or frozen
1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Toasted Sesame Ginger Seasoning
Add chicken to slow cooker. In my case, I forgot to take it out the night before, so I put it in frozen. First, however, I ran some cool water over the chicken so I could break the thighs into pieces so they fit in the slow cooker.
Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken.
Cover with the lid and cook for 6-8 hours on low. Remove the lid and add the peppers. Stir to combine. Put the lid back on and let them cook for 15 minutes while you're making the rice. When ready, remove the cover and using 2 forks, shred the chicken into pieces.
To make the rice, simply stir the Toasted Sesame Ginger seasoning into the riced cauliflower and then steam or microwave according to package directions. Place the chicken over the rice and serve hot.
