Chicken Fajita Fiesta Bowl

So, I had originally planned on making a chicken taco soup of sorts with the ingredients I bought, but changed plans last minute.  Boy, am I glad I did!  This turned out sooo yummy and totally hit the spot!  Definitely a win in my book!  (and now hopefully in yours).
P.S. If you are on 5&1 or Keto, skip the corn and beans

Ingredients
- 4 Chicken breasts
- 2 Green bell peppers
- 1 Head of Cauliflower
- Fajita seasoning (I used the Medifast mix, but you can use another packet if your heart so desires)
- 1/4 c. lime juice
- 1/4 c. water
- 2 Tbsp. olive or canola oil
- 1/4 c. cilantro + however much you want for garnish
- Shredded cheese
- Black beans (drained) (optional - off plan if you are on 5&1)
- Corn (drained) (optional - off plan if you are on 5&1)
- Half of a small onion (optional - off plan if you are on 5&1)


Directions
1. Cook chicken breasts.  I'm in love with cooking chicken with my steamer.  Hello easy!!  Throw 'em in frozen and steam for 40 minutes.  Done!  Nice and juicy and nooooo having to check on it until it's done.  Buuuut, if you don't have a steamer, you can just slice it and cook it in a fry pan, or bbq, bake, or whatever your chicken cooking preference may be.

2.  Chop the cauliflower into florets.  Add to a blender (love my Ninja!).  Blend to tiny bits...  aaaand Cauliflower rice!  Put it into a microwaveable bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Microwave for 5 min.  Let sit for 5 min.  Check how tender the cauliflower is.  If needed microwave an additional 5 min.

3. While your chicken is cooking, slice the peppers and onion into thin slices and add to deep frying pan.  Saute for 3-4 min. in oil.

4.  Slice cooked chicken into thin strips and add to peppers and onion.

5.  Mix lime juice, water, and fajita seasoning.  Add to chicken and peppers.  Add cilantro.
6.  Cook until the peppers are tender to your liking (~5 min).


To prepare your single serving fiesta bowl:
In a bowl, add your cauliflower rice (about a cup), a quarter of the chicken/pepper mixture, a bit of shredded cheese, a small spoonful of corn (optional), a small spoonful of beans (optional), and as much cilantro as your heart desires.  Eat up the deliciousness!
Each bowl is approximately 1 Lean & Green serving (no corn, beans, or onions for 5&1)
