Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

This recipe is probably one of my favorites. I have a sweet spot for anything Japanese, Asian, Chinese or related! It is just the best, and it has such a great flavor profile (sweet, umami, salty, all the good stuff ;) ) This one is so good and I thought it was super satisfying. 

Added bonus, my father (who won't eat cauliflower rice... and is pretty much against vegetable replacements of any sort) said he would add this to the "weekly rotations" that they do! So definitely try this out on your non-vegetable-loving kids and husbands!

In this recipe I use coconut aminos, this is a substitute to Soy Sauce, it doesn't contain any soy or gluten... if these don't matter to you, you can always use soy sauce! :) Just make sure to not use any salt... coconut aminos are sweet and it isn't salty like soy sauce. You can also make this with rice if you would rather not venture into the cauliflower rice territory ;)
