How to Make Chicken and Riced Risotto

Chicken and Riced Risotto

Since I am currently testing a new nutrition plan, I am testing several new recipes with my family. Chicken and Riced Risotto is a new recipe on this plan, but one you can enjoy without all the guilt of traditional risotto. Why? Because of traditional rice this dish is made with riced cauliflower. I love how flavorful it is and because it is a veggie base I can stay on plan easily. This recipe also goes along perfectly with the NEW 2B Mindset Nutrition Plan. Below is the recipe that I altered from a more traditional version of Risotto. Leave me a comment if you try it for yourself. Even my picky eater LOVED this dish! Enjoy!

Chicken and Riced Risotto

1 bag fresh or frozen riced cauliflower ( I used a bag of frozen riced cauliflower rice from Trader Joe’s)
Full Fat Organic Butter; 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese

1 cup portobello mushrooms
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 lb. raw chicken thighs, skinless
1 small onion or shallot (optional)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 dash tsp. Himalayan Salt
1 dash tsp. ground black pepper



  1. Place chicken thighs on a lined baking sheet or dish; drizzle EVOO over chicken on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  2. Place in  a pan full fat organic butter and melt on stove top. Then add  mushrooms and onions (optional) to brown. When mushrooms and onion begin to caramelize sprinkle with salt. Next add your bag of riced cauliflower and cook, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes. Finally add your chicken broth and seamer for about 1 minute; then top with cheese and let melt, stirring in slowly until it thickens.
  3. Serve with your chicken and you can also add roasted asparagus or green beans for a beautiful, healthy meal.
