How to Make Sheet Pan Salsa Chicken with Cauliflower Rice

Sheet Pan Salsa Chicken is a great example of how to combine a prepared convenience ingredient with fresh vegetables to create a nutritious and easy meal. And what goes better with Salsa Chicken than rice? To stick with our New Year resolution to make healthier choices, how about easy cauliflower rice instead?

For this recipe, we simply shredded one head of fresh cauliflower using an old-fashioned box grater. Time invested? About 5 minutes. To give the rice a little flavor, we tossed it with a tablespoon of olive oil and a big pinch of chili powder.

Once you have your “rice” ready, here’s how you put together the sheet pan salsa chicken:

  • First, pour the prepared cauliflower rice onto a small, rimmed baking sheet.
  • Arrange the Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken on top of the rice.
  • Next, bake in a 375 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top each chicken breast fillet with salsa and cheese.
  • Finally, return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes until the chicken has heated through.

 

 

That’s it.

I told you it was fast and easy.

For this recipe, I was sure to use a salsa that has zero sugar. I’m counting carbs and this Salsa Chicken recipe comes in at approximately 7 grams per serving. Plus Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken products are a great source of protein. The chicken breast fillets contain 21 grams per serving.

Also I love the way the cauliflower rice toasts and bakes light and fluffy. The texture reminds me of real rice without the extra carbs and calories.
