  • To make the sauce, place all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and run continuously to combine all the ingredients until smooth. Stop to scrape sides down as needed and restart.
  • Prep chicken as noted. "Rice" cauliflower in the food processor to have it ready if you're not using pre-riced cauliflower.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet or wok. Add chicken and season with a pinch or two of salt and pepper. Cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring to cook on all sides, until the chicken is cooked through.
  • While the chicken is cooking, prep bell pepper, broccoli, green beans and green onions as noted.
  • Once the chicken is cooked through, add the remaining 1 tbsp sesame oil to the pan, along with the bell pepper, broccoli, beans and green onions. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • At the same time, in a separate pan, heat avocado oil over medium heat. Add cauliflower rice and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is just tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Give the teriyaki sauce mixture a quick stir and then add it to the pan with the chicken and veggies. Stir until the veggies and chicken are evenly coated. Continue to cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Turn heat to low. Taste and season with any salt and/or pepper as desired.
  • Remove everything from heat and serve teriyaki chicken and veggies over cauliflower rice. Top with optional sesame seeds if desired.
