INGREDIENTS

 

  • 6 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice
  • ⅓ cup chopped red onion
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedges for serving (optional)

METHOD

 

  • Preheat grill to medium
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower, onion, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the cauliflower is softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup dill.
  • Meanwhile, rub 1 teaspoon oil all over the chicken. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill, turning once until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads 165 degrees F, about 15 minutes total. Slice crosswise.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 4 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, oregano, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Divide the cauliflower rice between 4 bowls. Top with the chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and feta. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup dill. Drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

Tips

 

To make your own, place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until broken down into rice-size granules. One 2-pound head of cauliflower yields about 4 cups of cauliflower rice.
