I couldn't find cauliflower rice (go figure, I swear I just saw it somewhere), so I just pulsed a pound of cauliflower florets in my food processor until they looked like rice. Voila! Tasted sooooo good with chicken and cilantro. Loved using lime for this -- would have thought lemon, so this was a vibrant change of pace.

I love cauliflower rice, and this version with the lime chicken was so delicious! The cumin, lime, and cilantro together were incredible. It's super light and delicious. This makes eating "healthy" so easy!

I used regular rice with the cilantro lime chicken and it was really good. I also used chicken thighs instead of breasts, but to each his own. Cumin, salt, and pepper were perfect for seasoning. Glad I tried this out.
