Instructions

  1. In a large ziploc bag, add chicken tenders and jerk sauce ( + salt and pepper) to marinate for 2 hours.
  2. As chicken is almost done marinating, chop up onions, peppers, cauliflower and rain corn and beans and set aside.
  3. Chop cauliflower into small pieces and add to food processor, process until ‘rice’-like pieces are formed.
  4. Add rice and sesame oil to sauté pan and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, add apple cider vinegar, sirarcha, tamari, and stir. Add to cauliflower rice and continue to cook for 8 minutes. Once almost done cooking, add two eggs and scramble throughout mixture. Add extra tamari to taste. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and set aside.
  6. In a large skillet, add chopped peppers, onion, olive oil, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of fajita seasoning. Add salt and pepper and sauté on medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until soft and beginning to char.
  7. In another large skillet, add 1 TBSP olive oil and add chicken tenders. Sprinkle with packet of fajita seasoning until covered.
  8. Sauté chicken until cooked thoroughly (about 10 minutes on low-medium heat).
  9. Once peppers and onions are almost cooked, add drained and rinsed beans and corn to mixture and stir.
  10. Once everything is done and cooled, separate into 4-5 different containers with each divided of cauliflower rice, sautéed veggies, and chicken.
  11. To make the sauce, add all sauce ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust as necessary. Add to small containers and drizzle upon eating.
