Love Fried Rice?  🍚 Eating low carb?

Try making a quick chicken fried rice skillet meal, and swapping out cauliflower for the rice! It’s a simple idea that my entire family enjoyed. Fried rice is one of the easiest takeout style meals you can make at home, and this cauliflower version is both delicious and filling.

This recipe is also simple to customize for your family by adding any desired veggies, and uses leftover cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken meat. If you’d like to use more veggies or shrimp instead that would work out great too!

I had my neighbor over for lunch recently for this easy to make meal, and we both LOVED it! The taste and texture is legitimately DELICIOUS! This is a must try idea that doesn’t disappoint. The re-heated leftovers are yummy too!

    Can’t believe how this turned out, it is so good. I wouldn’t believe it was cauliflower if I didn’t make it myself. Gotta try it

  2. K

    Looks fantastic 🙂 Actually had this exact dish planned for my weekly menu. I also add a little fish sauce (Three Crabs Logo Brand) and oyster sauce for added flavor. Great work Lina!

    • Lina D

      Oh that sounds great! Thanks for your nice comment!

  3. Daisy

    Dude!!! I totally made this for dinner last night! Lol

    • Lina D

      Haha that’s awesome!! Wasn’t it good?! 😀

  4. MrsO.

    I wish you had a Keto blog I could follow! My husband and I have been really enjoying Keto and it’s benefits.

  5. brokecollegekid

    where can I buy the bag of riced cauliflower? what brands are popular? and how much is it per bag?

    • Lina D

      You can find riced cauliflower now in most produce dept. and frozen food sections. I think I spend 2-3$ – I know trader joes has a popular brand. Hope that helps

    • Vivian

      Costco also carries bagged cauliflower.

    • JaxJay😎

      Costco has organic riced cauliflower, 6 decent sized bags in each box.

      • Lina D

        Oh thanks for sharing! I’ll look for it next time! 👍

    • Tolu

      Trader Joe’s too. The organic frozen is better than the fresh

    • Jac

      I’ve also found riced cauliflower in the produce section at Walmart and Kroger stores, and some major brands offer a frozen variety (find it w/ other frozen veggies). If all else fails, the food processor makes easy work of ricing your own.

  6. Vivian

    This is super good, you don’t miss the rice at all! I make it without chicken and I’ll make frozen orange chicken on the side.

  7. Boy-Mom

    Totally trying this…I have a frozen riced cauliflower in my freezer that I have been wanting to use!!!

    Making this tonight!!!

    KEEP the Low carb-Keto RECIPES COMIN’!!!! We made your CRACK CHICKEN recipe the other night OMG DELISH!!!!!!

  8. Laura

    Thank you so much!!! I can’t wait to try this!!! This is 100% right up our alley!!

    • Lina D

      Great! Enjoy 😀

  9. Ihearthip

    This might be good as lettuce wrap fillings! Thanks!!

    • Lina D

      Yes I think you’ll love it! ❤️

  10. Jmullaly

    Thank you so much for this great recipe. Loved it.

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome!

  11. Centerofattn315

    For those following a keto way of eating please note – carrots, peas, and canola oil are NOT keto!!

    For everyone please consider eliminating canola oil from your diet, it is not healthy for any way of eating.

    • Lina D

      Yes thanks – this recipe would be versatile to fit those changes. Use oils and veggies allowed 👍

  12. Marcie

    We actually had cauliflower fried rice and chicken for dinner tonight!

    • Lina D

      Yum!

  13. KC

    Centerofattn315 is correct big time. Only oils you should be using are olive and avocado oil.
    All be well.

    • Lina D

      Ok thanks – use those oils – easy to change.

  14. Mallory

    I made a batch of cauliflower fried rice (using a different recipe) for my diabetic father. I was weary of it because it smelled like feet, and it tasted as bad as it smelt. I tossed it and served him fried rice with white rice(high carb) instead.
