If you are spending this lockdown with your loved ones and family, then prepare cauliflower fried rice and a chicken recipe for dinner and enjoy some family time!
The leftover chicken you had the other day can be used for this recipe. To prepare this recipe, you need to blend florets of cauliflower in the blending jar until it turns into a rice-like mixture.
Fry the cauliflower with garlic in sesame oil and pour one-fourth cup of water to the pan. Cover the frying pan for some time. Once the cauliflower softens, remove the lid and toss the cooked chicken into your frozen vegetable mixture.
And… your dinner is ready! Have some fun time savouring a protein-rich and scrumptious meal with your family.
Social distancing is ultimately the key to preventing the spread of the virus, but so is keeping yourself as fit as a fiddle in general! Consider cooking these scrumptious yet healthy meals to ensure you’re in good health.
