Healthy sweet and sour chicken with cauliflower rice. Paleo, whole30, and made without sugar! An easy weeknight dinner recipe, freezer friendly, and makes for fast meal prep!
I didn’t even know this was going to work when I first started making this dish. I mean, sweet and sour minus the sugar part was never really a thing, as far as I am aware of. Like, who would do that?!
…well, me for starters.
My brothers were always the ones who were into all those fancy asian chicken dishes… you know, the ones you can pick up at the Safeway deli. Me, not so much. As a kid who was scared of anything too complex in appearance to make. And obviously a little shy or ordering chicken and rice from a man in a red uniform and hairnet- at the Safeway deli. Also, anything deriving from another country, minus the exception of my go-to pesto pasta dishes, seemed a little to adventures for my basic kid palate. I mean basic. Sandwich and pasta kinda basic.
What was I thinking! Where have you been all my life sweet and sour!
finally sweet and sour!
I suppose the thought of making chicken was daunting enough for me at ages twelve through eighteen, so I stayed away from the kitchen with a 10 foot pole and a list a mile long list of excuses!
…It really hasn’t been until recent years that I have tackled my fears of cooking- uh, I guess I really like it now; hence the food blog being my job part, hehe. 🙂
This recipe calls for cauliflower rice- to serve as a bed for your chicken and vegetables. But, if you’re not into that, feel free to swap it up and use regular rice for any other vegetable as your base! You can even omit it completely and It will still be darn tasty.
