Chicken Fried “Rice”

This is recipe I found originally from the 17 day diet book, however with just one slight modification it works great for my Paleo lifestyle! Even my kiddos enjoyed this delicious version of chicken fried “rice” with cauliflower rice, instead of traditional white rice.


Chicken Fried “Rice”


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 small bag of shredded coleslaw mix (I used rainbow slaw: broccoli, cauliflower and carrots)
  • minced garlic
  • coconut aminos (or Braggs)
  • organic low sodium chicken broth


  1. Using a food processor (or cheese grater) grate the head of the cauliflower down to the size of rice.
  2. Cube and stir fry chicken breasts in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Set aside
  3. Scramble the eggs in pan spray. Set aside.
  4. Stir fry the coleslaw mix and garlic in 1 tbsp of olive oil, about 5 minutes on medium.
  5. Add another tbsp of olive oil and the grated cauliflower to the coleslaw mix. Stir fry another 5-7 minutes. Add a few tbsp's of chicken broth as you go. This will help steam the veggies.
  6. Add back the chicken and eggs. Add coconut aminos to taste.

    Nice twist on fried rice. I need to start liking cauliflower, it is the one veggie I have never enjoyed.

    Hi, I found this page after a google for 17 Day Diet recipes. Wow I made this tonight and it was super good! I’d tried cauliflower rice before and failed big, but this time I grated it with a cheese grater. For a little more flavor, I added in ground pepper, a little bit of ginger, and crushed red pepper. Also I shook a little soy sauce on the cooked cubed chicken before mixing it in. My husband loved it too. I’ve got the main 17 Day Diet book from the library and don’t see this recipe in there, I wonder if it is in their separate cookbook? Either way, thanks for sharing!
