Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 8 ounces boneless chicken breast
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 teaspoon lemon thyme (or regular thyme)
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- pinch sea salt
- 3/4 cup cauliflower
- 1/2 cup chopped spinach
Here's how to make it:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
