  • 4 cup Frozen Riced Cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • 1 large Eggs
  • 1 1/4 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast cubed
  • 1/2 cup Celery drained

  1. Preheat oven to 400*F.
  2. In a microwave-safe container, combine the cauliflower and water. Microwave for 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft. Remove the excess water with a slotted spoon. Allow the cauliflower to cool fully before draining. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible using a cheesecloth.
