Ingredients

Chicken:

Other:

  • 1 yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound sugar snap peas
  • 1 1/3 cups prepared Cauliflower Rice for serving
  • 2 scallions green and white parts, thinly sliced, for serving

Instructions

  • Stir together all ingredients for the chicken in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, or overnight.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken (and its marinating liquid) and cook until browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. Don’t stir until the chicken is browned on the first side.
  • Add the onion and bell pepper, and cook until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the sugar snap peas and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly.
  • To serve, add 1/3 cup of cauliflower rice to an individual bowl and top with 1/4 of the stir fry. Garnish with scallion if desired.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
