Ingredients

  • 2.5 lbs cooked chicken breast (4 1/2 cups, shredded)

  • 2 tbsp compliant ranch dressing

Instructions

  2. Coat a 9X9 or a 9X13 baking dish with olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl, add the cauliflower rice, onions, green onions, banana peppers or green chilies, cooked shredded chicken, Franks Red Hot Sauce, mayo, ranch, nutritional yeast and the rest of the seasoning. 
  4. Mix all the ingredients together until completely combined. 
  5. Transfer the mixture to the baking dish and add to the oven.

  7. Drizzle with ranch, top with fresh chopped green onions and add a little more Franks Hot Sauce to the top.

Notes

  • Be sure to check the ingredients for the banana peppers for compliant ingredients. I love buying mine through Thrive Market, which is compliant for the Whole30 program. 
  • You can add in the cauliflower rice in frozen or raw. You do NOT have to cook it before adding it to the oven.
  • This will last in the fridge up to one week and in the freezer for 3 months.
