Garlic Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice


]Since I was making our Garlic Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice for lunch today, I figured I would make a new post for it showing the step-by-step although it is very similar to our Japanese Garlic Beef Cauliflower Fried Rice (Chahan)

The biggest difference between the beef and chicken is the texture.  The beef is somewhat soft whereas the chicken is crispier, so it mimics the texture better of traditional fried rice. 

Chicken also has a more neutral profile than beef, so I think it carries the flavors of Fried Rice better.  I think this recipe is pretty spot on with Benihana’s Garlic Chicken Fried Rice, so if you like their version, definitely give this one a try!

The dish offers near exact flavors of Benihana’s Garlic Fried Rice with a balanced profile of salt and pepper.  It’s so good, you probably won’t be able to tell it’s cauliflower rice!!

    This looks like a delicious recipe – I would really like to know the fat/carb/protein numbers.
    Thanks

      Hi Mark – Unfortunately, we don’t have the other nutritional facts. Since we use a lot of Asian ingredients in our recipes, the calculators used are notoriously inaccurate when tallying up those numbers.
