‘Down and Dirty’ Cauliflower Rice

I think we are all part Cajun. How can you not love the down home cooking of New Orleans and the culture that embodies their food scene. To recreate their “dirty” rice, which is simply rice cooked with Cajun spices and a meat that darkens the normally white chicken, I used Cauliflower as a substitute and a blend of our favorite spices. You could add shrimp and sausage and make this into a jambalaya or keep it as is…

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett

3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and diced into 1” cubes
