  • Place the cleaned chicken breast into a strong medium sized zip-lock bag. Add all of the marinade ingredients into the bag. Seal it. Mix thoroughly until well combined. Let it marinade for at least 3 hours or overnight.

  • In a medium sauce pot combine the rice, water, salt, and pepper. Simmer on low heat, covered with a tilted lid for about 30 minutes, or until all of the water has been cooked. When finished allow it to rest without the lid.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 deg F. Heat up a medium sauté pan with 2-3 tsp of olive oil. Sear the marinated chicken breast for 3-4 minutes on each side. Put the chicken on a sheet tray, and place it in the oven. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until an internal temp of 160 deg F. Take out of the oven, and let it rest 5 minutes before slicing.

  • While the chicken and the rice are cooking. Bring 3 cups of salted water to a boil. Blanch the carrots for 3-5 minutes, or until tender. Cool down in ice water, remove from water, and set aside.

  • While the water is boiling, heat up a large sauté pan on high. To the DRY pan add the cauliflower, allow it to char on all sides. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Once the cauliflower has a nice color to it yet not soft, lower the heat to medium. Add olive oil, onions, prepped carrots, and chili flakes. Add a pinch of salt and mix until combined. Cook 5 more minutes.

  • Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and agave syrup. Mix thoroughly. Simmer on lower heat for a few minutes until fragrant. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Your veggies are done!

  • Place a couple of scoops of rice on the plate. Put a large spoonful of the vegetables over the rice. Finally place your sliced chicken breast over the whole thing. Remember to save the juice from the chicken and the vegetables. Enjoy!
