  1. Put 1tbsp oil into your pan and heat up to medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook until browned. (approximately 4-5minutes). Remove from pan and set aside. Note the chicken will not be cooked through at this point.
  2. In the same pan, add the garlic for about 20 seconds, until fragrant. Add in the sausage and peppers until sausage is browned (3-5minutes)
  3. While the sausage is browing, blend together the whole tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 tbsp italian seasoning, and approximately 1/4tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper.
  4. Add the blended mixure to the sausage and peppers, bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling, put the browned chicken into the mixture, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
  6. While the mixture is simmering, add olive oil into a separate pan and warm the riced cauliflower in a pan on medium-high heat.
  7. Add a layer of the finished rice to a bowl, scoop a healthy amount of the chicken/sausage mixture onto your rice, and top with chopped basil (optional). Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Instead of whole tomatoes, you could probably use “tomato sauce” that is compliant and skip the blending. Simply add the ingredients in the pan and continue. Let me know if you try this.
