Coconut-Lime Chicken and Cauliflower “Rice”

Advanced & Core Plan
Serves 4
This is a fabulous recipe loaded with fresh, healthy ingredients.  The fresh lime juice gives the chicken a light, tangy taste and the creaminess of the coconut makes for a delightful sauce.  It is a quick meal that tastes amazing.  The cauliflower in place of the rice will be a pleasant surprise.
