Ingredients:

* Grocery List at the end of post! *

  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil

  • salt and pepper

  • 3 shallots, diced

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 6 Thai Chilis, deseeded, thinly sliced, and diced (they are pretty small and hot, adjust to taste)

  • 3 tsp date paste (how to make date paste in 4 min)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (I use Red Boat)

  • 1/2 cup Bonafide Provisions Chicken Bone Broth

  • 1 bunch of Thai basil leaves, chopped (you can substitute Thai basil with regular basil)

  • 16oz. cauliflower rice (I love CeCe’s Veggie Co.)

Directions:

  1. In a wok or a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the chilies, shallots and garlic, and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the ground chicken, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the date paste, coconut aminos, and fish sauce and cook for 1 minute before adding the chicken broth (you want to deglaze the pan with the broth). Add the basil and cook until wilted, about 1 minute.

  2. While you are cooking the chicken, heat your cauliflower rice in a separate skillet over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Serve over cauliflower rice!

Enjoy XX!
