I have grown to love veggies, but it is still a struggle for my family. So I hide them as much as possible. It is so easy to do now days. This recipe DOES have Cauliflower, but when you mix it 50/50 with the Basmati Rice, spices and onion, you can't taste it. It makes you feel like you are getting MORE rice too, which is a trick this carb lover uses regularly. So here is how I made this scrumptious Hidden Veggie Jerk Chicken and rice.
Let's start with the Jerk Seasoning followed with the marinade, because you will need those first and they come from someone I love dearly! Her name is TAS and I met her through this online coaching gig. We are running a Summer Shape Up online bootcamp together. I got permission from her to share her Jerk Seasoning and Marinade. They are the heart of this dish so THANK YOU TAS!!!
Also we are starting another round next Monday and are now enrolling. Come see what having me as your coach can do for you reaching your goals. Here is what a challenge group is like:

Now on to the delicious recipe!
Tas Scott-Gass “Jerk” EVERYTHING for dinner tonight!! 🔥🔥🔥 But I have to say, I REALLY loved it on my head of cauliflower! Instead of putting it straight on the grill, I put in on a pie plate wrapped in foil and let it bake on the upper rack while I grilled chicken and sweet potato below! Definitely one of my favorite flavor combinations!
💥 JERK SEASONING 💥
4 t. Allspice
4 t. Salt
2 t. Ginger
2 t. Nutmeg
1 t. Cloves
2 t. Thyme
2 t. Pepper
💥 For MARINADE add:
8 cloves of garlic
2 T. EVOO
2 T. Honey
Juice of 1 lime
1 habanero (scotch bonnet) - or 1/2 or 1/4 depending on your heat level! (Sometimes I use 2 🔥)
❤️This is good for 2-3 lbs meat or veggies. I like to double up the spice blend just to have on hand for eggs or lunch veggies. It’s honestly good on everything! 🔥🔥🔥

SO now that you have your seasoning and marinade. Lets get down to business.
Preheat your oven to 375.
In a mixing bowl, combine:
2 cups riced cauliflower
1/2 chopped onion
2 cups cooked basmati, jasmine or brown rice
1 tsp jerk seasoning
Add to a large prepared baking dish.
Next you need:
1 1/2 lbs Chicken breasts (or your favorite cut of chicken or protein) I cut mine to tenders.
Jerk seasoning to taste
avocado or olive oil
Lightly sprinkle the jerk seasoning onto cut prepared chicken (or your favorite protein) on both sides.
Heat a fry pan on high and lightly coat with your favorite HEALTHY cooking oil (Olive, Avocado, Coconut). Flash fry... quick sear each piece of meat on both sides for about 30 seconds, then top on top of prepared baking dish filled with rice and cauliflower.
Top each piece of seared protein with the marinade you prepared. Then put in the oven for 20 minutes.
