Whole 30 Chicken and Mediterranean-Style Cauliflower

Sharing is caring!

Cauliflower Final

I can’t speak for anyone else that has completed the Whole30 but I find cauliflower to be a savior when it comes to mixing things up and keeping you motivated to continue throughout the 30 days. Cauliflower itself is a huge benefit to our body; it’s not only rich in vitamins and minerals it also boosts your brain health and is an anti-inflammatory. Cauliflower has allowed me to make Whole30 Enchiladas, Whole30 Chicken Fried Rice and EVEN Whole30 Pizza! I decided to continue the “5 Whole30 Chicken Recipes in 5 Days” series by showing you one of my favorite recipes that I like to make for my husband and me. It is a Mediterranean-style cauliflower rice and I usually make it with some pan fried chicken. We both love it and I usually make enough that we can have it for lunch the next day.

  • Chicken:
    • 2 lbs of chicken (I usually use boneless chicken breast).
    • Seasonings: Salt, pepper and onion powder.
    • Ghee or coconut oil, for pan.
  • Mediterranean Style Cauliflower Rice
    • 3 bags of cauliflower rice. (I normally get my cauliflower rice from Trader Joes or Sprouts)
    • 1 cup of pitted green olives
    • 1 cup of Whole30 approved Chicken Broth
    • 1 cup of chopped fresh parsley
    • 3 tbsp of lemon juice
    • 1 tsp of garlic powder
    • 1 tsp of onion powder
    • 3 tbsp of olive oil
    • 1 tsp of pepper
    • 1 tsp of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all cauliflower ingredients into one bowl. Mix thoroughly. Spread out the cauliflower onto a baking dish. I usually use a 9 X 13 dish.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes. In the meantime, start preparing the chicken.
  4. Season chicken in salt, pepper and onion powder. Coat pan with ghee or coconut oil. Pan fry all chicken pieces until thoroughly cooked.
  5. When the cauliflower is finished, place each chicken on top of the rice OR plate each dish separately. ENJOY!

I hope you enjoy it and as always, please let me know if you have tried it or even if you mixed it up and changed the recipe!
