If you have been following me for a while, then you know how much I love Indian and Persian food! Some favorites are this Chicken Tikka Masala and this Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk.

I’ve partnered with ALDI to create this nutritious dish using organic chicken breast, ghee, cauliflower rice and lots of fragrant spices. What I love about ALDI is their obsession with selling fresh, organic meats and clean label products at the lowest prices so eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive.

Inspired by the popular Indian or Persian dish, Chicken Biryani, only streamlined to make quick, easy and low carb. By replacing the rice with riced cauliflower, it's also Keto and Whole30 friendly.

Chicken biryani is quite possibly the most well-known rice dish from India, which is a long and complex dish. This low-carb skillet version transforms biryani into a quick, accessible dish made with easy-to-find ingredients. The whole thing comes together in less than 30 minutes making this the perfect weeknight dish!

I’m always looking for new ways to prepare cauliflower rice, so I’m excited with how this turned out. Made with tender spiced chicken breast, it’s so flavorful, with the perfect balance of heat and aromatic spices and the fresh lemon brightens the whole dish up.
