  • Total Time: 35 Minutes

Servings: 4 Serving



  1. Add oil to a large frying pan over medium high heat.

    1. When hot, add scallion and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

    2. Add chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes until opaque.

    3. Add all the vegetables and sprinkle with seasoning. If you are using thicker, heavier vegetables like broccoli, add the broth to help steam/cook them a little faster. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for 5 more minutes until veggies are crisp-tender, but not overdone.

    4. While chicken is cooking, prepare cauliflower rice.

    5. Remove chicken mixture from heat. Divide cauliflower rice into 4 equal portions. Do the same with the chicken mixture.

    6. Place the chicken over the rice and sprinkle with 1/4 of the crushed cashews. Serve hot and enjoy!
