Juicy sliced lemon pepper chicken on a bed of cauliflower rice and spinach is what healthy dreams are made of. This healthy chicken recipe takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and will fill you up!

Made with boneless chicken breasts, this lemon pepper chicken recipe makes one serving, but you could easily increase the recipe to feed a family. It's a complete dinner, but you could add a fresh side salad.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 1


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat a frying pan with 1 teaspoon olive oil on medium. Roll the chicken breast in the herbs and spices, and squeeze over half the lemon juice. Cook the breast for 10 minutes before flipping and cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until cooked through. Add the other half of the lemon to the pan, cut side down. Cook until charred.
  2. Meanwhile, prep the cauliflower rice by finely shopping or blending the cauliflower to a rice-like texture. Mix through the spinach and dress with additional lemon juice and a splash of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove the chicken and lemon from the pan. Slice the breast on an angle. Place the cauliflower rice mix in a bowl and top with the chicken. Serve with charred lemon half.
