Droolllll. Ugh, you guys. Never did I think, dream, imagine! No one could have seen it coming… the utter need to faceplate into a oversized pile of Spanish cauliflower chicken and “rice”. To you it may seem healthy, but wait until you try it! It’s just GOOD, you’ll never know it’s just 200 calories per serving. You don’t think about healthy when you are eating Spanish chicken and cauliflower rice, there’s no room for that. Only room for delicious thoughts like:

I WANT MORE!

I can’t believe that was so easy to make!

Can I have another serving?

I hope nobody else wants any!

Oh no! Am I already at the bottom of the pan (drop the fork).

Spanish cauliflower rice is the best!

Okay, now that we have covered the fact that you need this in your life, let’s talk details.

Cauliflower rice is a healthy sub for grains, and thanks to (most) stores, you don’t even have to make it at home anymore! Just add a bag of cauliflower rice, some spices, fresh herbs, lemon juice, and that glistening herby/lemon chicken and you have yourself a weeknight-in dinner made in minutes; worthy of Netflix, pj’s, a square of dark chocolate for dessert, and second servings!

Every reason I love this one pan dinner that tastes like HEAVEN:

  • New, exciting, fresh-flavor like, where have you been my whole life!?
  • Secretly healthy ingredients, see: cauliflower rice.
  • Meal prep friendly. In essence, can be stored in the fridge or freezer in single serving sizes for later.
  • EASY.
  • YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY, and YUMMY!

I hope you love it! Enjoy… and try and not eat the whole pan by yo self. 😉 It’s a tough life, but somebody has to do it. 🙂

    In the picture, it looks like there might be sun dried tomatoes? I don’t see that on the recipe list. What’s the red things in the picture? It looks really yummy!!

    This was absolutely delicious!!!! Tastes just like Arroz con Pollo! I used frozen cauli rice, so I think that’s why mine had too much liquid. No problem though-I just drained it off and cooked it a bit longer without the lid on-it turned out perfect! Thank you for the recipe

    This was so good! I’m always a little skeptical of cauliflower rice, but there was no cauliflower taste to it at all and the texture was perfect. I’ll probably reduce the liquid by half next time (maybe my lid doesn’t let enough steam escape?) but other than that, it’s soooo good, even my kids loved it! Thanks Kaylie!

    This is very good and going in my regular rotation! I did not have tomatoes, but added half of a diced onion and a whole chopped zucchini. Definite keeper!

    Made this and followed recipe exactly. It tastes AMAZING!! I will definitely make this again! I did have the excess liquid many have commented on, so I just drained it after the cooking was done. I also garnished with cilantro and sun dried tomatoes….so delicious!!

    This was amazing!!!! I must say that I modified the recipe some by adding fresh onion and garlic, as well as jarred roasted red peppers. Also, I didn’t have cilantro on hand, so I substituted fresh parsley for garnish. OMG!!!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe…it’s exactly what I needed to kick-start my flavor profile again!

    As a Latina, eating Paleo I’ve missed many of my traditional dishes. This tastes just like Arroz Con Pollo. I am not a fan of cauliflower! However, I ate this dish with such relish and satisfaction it was all I could do to contain myself and not eat more than my ‘Palm-sized’ portion! I also added half an onion, a little bit of chopped cilantro and sautéed it in tocino (pork belly) with the rendered fat, rather than EVO. (Yes all organic, free range) In addition, I had some curly kale so I chopped a little and threw it in the onion/tocino sauté as well. The husband who’s not Paleo had multiple servings. No problem with the amount of liquid in the dish, I used a slotted spoon to drain my serving while he poured it all over his plate, then used a spoon to ‘soup’ it up at the end. Now if only there was some way to have Frijoles Negro, served with “rice” and pork cracklings!

    There was one big problem with this recipe. I didn’t make enough! (5people.) It was sooo good! My family loved it. Including the 7 and 12 year old. I did make it with chicken breasts instead of thighs. I will definitely make this again. Maybe with a little less spice because of the 7 year old, even though she went for seconds. I made rice for the kids and used the extra juice for that.
