Paleo Coconut Curry Chicken over Cauliflower Rice!

OK…forgot to document this one, so I’ll just list the recipe that I followed and show my final result! Made a BIG pot of this and was my lunch/dinner for the week! =) DELICIOUS!

Ingredients (serves 4):
– 4 chicken thighs & legs (still in tact), skin on (I just chopped up my boneless-skinless chicken breast)
–  1 cauliflower (to make the rice)
– 1 Tbsp coconut oil
– 1 Onion – finely chopped
– 5 garlic cloves – smashed and roughly chopped
– 1 red chili pepper – seeds removed, chopped (I used a Scotch Bonnet pepper)
– 1 can coconut milk
– 2 Tbsp curry powder
Directions:
  1.  In a large skillet, heat coconut oil to a med-high heat
  2. Put chicken pieces into the skillet and cook until each side golden-browned (about 3 min per side)
  3. Remove chicken and set aside.
  4. Add onion, garlic and chili – saute for about 3 min or until soft
  5. Add the coconut milk and curry powder – mix together thoroughly
  6. Add back the chicken and simmer at medium heat covered for about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  You can use a meat thermometer to check and it should be about 155 before you stop cooking it (it will continue to cook up to 160 which is the perfect internal temp).  The coconut milk that the chicken is simmering in should cover about 1/2 of the chicken – if yours’ doesn’t you can add more coconut milk or some chicken stock.
  7. For the cauliflower rice, either use your food processor to chop the cauliflower to a rice consistency or use a cheese grater.  If you have a microwave you can cook it in the microwave for 3 minutes and it’ll be good to go.  Otherwise you can steam it for a few minutes.  I always cook my cauliflower after I’ve grated it.
  8. Serve the chicken on a bed of cauliflower rice.
  9. Enjoy!

ENJOY!!
