Cilantro Lime Chicken with Cauliflower Rice


There’s nothing like  incorporating the flavors of spring into a delicious, meal-prep recipe that you can eat all week long!

This cilantro lime chicken is everything you’ve ever wanted in a chicken recipe. It’s fresh and perfectly flavored. Best part? It can be eaten hot or cold! I actually prefer to mix temperatures when I eat. So what I did for this recipe specifically was eat the cauliflower rice warm and the chicken cold. Speaking of the cauliflower rice. You’re going to love it! We used the pre-riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s and mixed in some spices, black beans, and some raw red onion. You can use your own favorite rice as an option too!  Yum sauce.
