    We love this dish with the Cauliflower Rice. It is easy and very good. Love it because you have your meat with a vegetable and no carbs.

    Delicious and super easy and quick to make!
    Delish! I did sear the chicken breast a little first and it ended up perfectly tender and not even a little dry. Super easy, cheap and quick!
